Lynelle, Graham and Nell Robb, Bill and Enid Bartlett, Keith Owers and Barrie and Dianna Clarke cut the 50th birthday cake.


More than 200 people helped celebrate the Deniliquin Baptist Church’s 50th birthday on Saturday and Sunday.

The event, which marked the anniversary of the church being officially constituted, begun with a meet and greet of past and present Deniliquin Baptist Church members and pastors on Saturday.

As guests packed the Baptist Church, the walls soon began to echo with the sound of memories.

Stories of what the church was like 50 years ago were popular, and of how much has changed since.

Although a lot was different, one thing remained the same — the ‘church family’.

Pastor Whiley said everyone enjoyed seeing friends they had not seen for years.

‘‘It’s like a big family,’’ he said.

‘‘People travelled far and wide to join in the celebrations and it was great.

‘‘There are so many memories in the church’s history.’’

The meet and greet was held in the church foyer before guest enjoyed dinner in the church hall and guest speakers shared their memories.

On Sunday, celebrations continued with a ‘traditional service with a twist’ before the official cutting of the cake.

A barbecue lunch was held in the Waring Garden after the service.
