Off to Church

Artemesia was regarded as a Wesleyan mission with no churches until 1862 when one was built after devine services had been held in the Munshaw House for some time.

St. John’s Methodist was built in 1877, Chalmers Presbyterian in 1885, the Baptist Church in 1886. The Methodist and Presbyterian churches united in 1925 using the St. John’ church building. The Chalmers Church building was converted into a town hall, then reverted to church use later when bought by Cedarside Baptist Church.
