“All Saint's Church, Hindmarsh. The foundation stone of this Church, was laid on Monday last, by the Lord Bishop of Adelaide, in the presence of Lady Young, and a large assemblage of clergy and others. In the evening of the same day a public meeting of subscribers was held at' the temporary Church.” [South Australian 23 Nov 1849]


“An interesting meeting was held at Hindmarsh, in Mr. Crawford's store, for the purpose of assisting a fund now being raised to defray some expenses which have been incurred in the erection of a gallery and an extension of the sittings in All Saints' Church. Tea was provided. . . debt incurred in the erection of a gallery capable of containing 100 Sunday-school children, and also by the extension of accommodation for the congregation.” [Register 26 Oct 1855]


“the desirableness of having a chancel erected in connection with the building had often been expressed, but it had never appeared practicable to enter upon the work until Mr. John Taylor, of Thebarton, who takes a deep interest in the Church, very liberally offered to bear the expense . . . A vestry adjoining has been erected out of the funds of the Church. . . The style of the structure in the main is Norman, consisting of nave and chancel, with a gallery, and is capable of seating about 300 persons. . . . the interior of the old portion of the edifice having been renovated, the church presents quite a neat and comfortable appearance. . . On Tuesday evening, January 14, the church and new chancel were consecrated by His Lordship the Bishop of Adelaide.” [Advertiser 15 Jan 1873]


“For a considerable time past the want of a school building in connection with the above church has been felt by the teachers and scholars. . . The laying of the foundation-stone had been delayed for the arrival of the Rev. Mr. Pollitt, from England.” [Register 9 Oct 1882]


“The new schoolroom and lecture hall recently erected in connection with All Saints’ Church, Hindmarsh, was opened on Wednesday evening, March 28, by the Lord Bishop of Adelaide (Dr. Kennion).” [Advertiser 29 Mar 1883]


“All Saints' Church, Hindmarsh, is preparing to celebrate its 75th anniversary by special services on November 1 (All Saints’ Day). To mark the event the whole of the interior was renovated, after the gallery had been removed. A porch is to be erected over the front door, and the record stone will be unveiled by Mrs. Spooner on October 31.” [Advertiser 24 Oct 1925]
