Artist's Description

My version of the beautiful St Paul’s Presbyterian Church at Hill End, catching the evening light. The unfinished stained glass window on the back wall bears witness to the crash experienced in gold mining in the late 1870s when many men moved on to other areas to find work. The rubble included indicates another building which has crumbled. Indeed the township boasted 30,000 population and 51 hotels in its heyday.

While there are other church buildings in Hill End, this is the only one still used … Easter Sunday evening we were privileged to attend a unique lamplight service, emulating conditions the miners worshipped under in the 1870s.

FEATURED in Red Door Creative Group May 2011

Russell Drysdale immortalised this scene – a print of his artwork is used in a sign on the roadside
