St Clement's Anglican Church at Camberwell

PARISHIONERS lobbying to save the historic St Clement's Anglican Church at Camberwell from the wrecking ball have urged people to show their support at a public meeting.
Where:Singleton Bowling Club at 10am.
When: Saturday January 16.

Members have been circulating petitions and want as many people as possible to show up ahead of the Anglican Diocese of Newcastle property approvals board meeting on February 3.
The Anglican Diocese of Newcastle Property Approvals Board has rejected plans to restore the heritage-listed St Clement's Anglican Church following a 2008 arson attack and instead, recommended demolition because of rising damp.
The Georgian-style church dates to 1841 and is one of the oldest churches in Australia.

Anyone who cannot attend is urged to write letters, sign a petition or leave a message at
