About this object

This is a bishop's chair from St Mary's Anglican Church, Wyndham.

About St Mary's:

The original St Mary's was built 1893. Prior to this, services had taken place in the Odd Fellow Hall. A vestry wasn't built until 1912, and not long after this a stable for the Vicar's horse was also erected. Until the 1940s, the average length of an appointment of vicars rarely exceeded three years and were often a shorter duration. The clergy came and went also, however, a strong group of core members served on the vestry. In 1949, this core group formed the New Church Building Fund. The foundation stone for the new church was laid in March 1967.

In 2009, the Anglican Church closed, and since then the building has been converted into a home for the local Evangelical Church pastor.
