Camberwell Salvation Army Band and Organ Soloist is cancelled

Unfortunately this programme of music for brass and organ, presented by the Camberwell Salvation Army Band and organist Mark Slavec has been cancelled.  Hopefully this Australian première of Intrada - St Anne by Melbourne composer June Nixon, for two trumpets and organ, can be organised for a future date. 

 

Servicemen from Auburn Church killed in WW2

As part of the research for the celebration day, 75 Years that Changed the World, we are preparing a booklet telling the stories of the seven servicemen from Auburn Church who did not return from WW2  and who are honoured on the plaque on the south wall. There is uncertainty as to the identity of H Howard and F Watson.  If anyone remembers these men, or knows of any descendants, please contact Philip Powell, 0422 312 088.

 

 

 

 

Tower Open Day: 20 March 2022 4-8pm

Sunday 21 November 2021 4-8pm: this was a great success with 64 people, including 11 children, visiting the tower.  There was an interesting display of vintage Rover Cars on the lawns in front of the church and the weather was perfect. 

Sunday 28 March 2021: our first public opening of the Tower from 4pm until sunset. The weather was perfect with a colourful sunset and an equinox full moon.  56 visitors climbed the Tower (including 9 children).

Sunday, 13 December 2020, (midday to 4pm).  The Friends of the Auburn Tower Inc: auburntowerfriends.org.au  held a successful Open Day. Due to COVID restrictions, numbers were limited to 120, and nearly every one of these places was taken up by members of the public keen to see what had been happening behind the scaffolding.

24 November 2019: Between 2pm and 6pm we welcomed over two dozen visitors – all of whom were climbing the Tower for the first time. This coincided with a concert of the combined Victoria Welsh Choir and Geelong Welsh Ladies Choir and, throughout the afternoon, sublime music floated around the Church and foyer and up through the stairwell.

7 April 2019 (2-4pm) when 33 people (23 adults and 10 children) went up the Tower

2 December 2018 (midday-4pm), 34 people went up the Tower

There are also panoramic photos taken from the Tower Viewing Deck on display at the 3rd level of the tower.
