Northern churches

 The churches mentioned on these pages I have taken services in.

The information about them is from the book "Our Heritage of Anglican Churches in Tasmania" by Dorothea I. Henslowe. Plus some of my thoughts.

It is my aim to get as many photos of the chuches where I have preached in as I can. I have made a start.

Churches in the various areas are underlined.
