There was a public tea at 4 p.m., and an entertainment, consisting of songs, recitations, and negro performances by lady and gentlemen amateurs, in aid of the Building Fund. The weather was propitious, and there was the largest crowd ever assembled in Elliston. The whole was a great success, about £40 having been raised.” [Register 2 Sep 1882] “The foundation stone of the Elliston Church was laid by Miss M. Crowe on Wednesday, Aug. 30, in the presence of about 300 persons. The treasurer (Mr. J. H. Crowe) stated that the subscriptions in hand amounted to £70, with £24 more in promises. A tea was provided in Mr. Marquis's store, followed by an entertainment. Total proceeds, £50.” [Christian Colonist 22 Sep 1882] “The church building — which may be used by any denomination — is nearly completed.” [Adelaide Observer 21 Oct 1882] “A harvest thanksgiving service was held in St. Andrew's Church, Elliston yesterday.
