"Herons Creek today faces a big challenge.
It's not just the need to keep this fine building in good repair, but to realize that the witness of this generation will leave its effects on the next." Mrs Evan Dykes, founding member of the Herons Creek St Mary the Virgin Church, 1977
St Mary's is the only building in Herons Creek that is heritage listed, so it is of much significance to the history of this small township, our region and state.
84 years after it first opened, the historic church was re-opened on Saturday November 26, 2011 complete with an olde days picnic in the grounds.
Re-opening day at the Herons Creek Heritage Community Chapel
Now re-opened it has been used as a church again, and as a community hall for the benefit of the people of Herons Creek. A place for community BBQs, support groups, public meetings and other activitiesas desired, for church services, weddings and funerals.
The church restoration was the dream of Martin Parish and his wife Jeanette Alderson. (Martin is the grandson of Harry and Sarah Parish, former local Post Masters, and eldest son of Kevin Parish).
