  • The refurbished St Mark's Anglican Church Hall in Clayfield has now opened
  • Renovated meeting rooms encourage community events and gatherings
  • The Coalition Government invested $8,000

Parishioners of the St Mark's Anglican Church today celebrated the reopening of the renovated 1900s historic hall following an $11,000 refurbishment.

Minister for Regional Development Fiona Nash said the Coalition Government is committed to investing in regional Australia.

“I aim to build the kinds of communities our children and grandchildren either want to stay in or come back to, and enjoyable community facilities are a big part of that.”

Federal Member for Brisbane Trevor Evans, who joined the Clayfield community today to celebrate the refurbishment, said he was pleased the Australian Government was investing in historical community landmarks.

“St Mark's Anglican Church has been serving the Clayfield community since the early 1900s and with this upgrade, will continue to operate for years to come,” Mr Evans said.

“The Hall's upgraded meeting rooms will provide a comfortable, safe environment for community gatherings and encourage more community groups to use church facilities.

“This project has been a real community effort. Members of the parish volunteered their labour for two days to paint the meeting rooms to ensure that renovating costs were kept at a minimum.”

The project was jointly funded by the Coalition Government ($8,000) and the St Mark's Anglican Church ($2,994).
