St Paul's Presbyterian Church by 

Hill End. St Paul’s is in Tambaroora St., Hill End. It was commenced and completed in 1872 at a cost of £1500. There was no electricity, so candles and oil lamps provided the lighting. Now there are two lamp light services held each year, one at Easter and the other at Christmas.
There are two organs in the church, they are both operated by foot pedals that regulate the air flow and buttons above the key board. There is no organist in Hill End so the minister brings an organist from Mudgee with him.
We had the pleasure of attending the lamp light service at Easter.
