Bible Christian Church in South Australia.
started as a Denomination in 1850, origins were in Cornwall and
Devon and originally founded by William O'Bryan, and brought
to Australia by Cornish miners at Burra. An off-shoot of Methodism
it spread quickly across the Adelaide and Wakefield Plains. In
1850 Rev's Way and Rowe arrived from England, closely followed
by Samuel Keen. It was these men that established the church
in South Australia.
their little chapels still exist, including the attached cemeteries.
Some are gone for for ever, some are now Methodist churches are
now live on. The Bible Christians along with the Primitive Methodists,
become Methodists in 1900 as part of the Methodist Union. Which
later was to become part of todays Uniting Church.
