The towns of Wickham and Roebourne are situated close to Karratha in the Pilbara region of the North West. Roebourne’s first Anglican service took place in 1871. In October 1883 the first Church building at Roebourne was opened, but destroyed by a cyclone in January 1884. Services were then held in the school until the present church building in Roebourne was opened on the 15th December, 1895.
Cliffs WA Mining Company built the Wickham township in 1970 and the government gazetted it on the 26th November, 1971. The parish of Wickham began in May 1985, but due to a decline in population, the parish was closed down at the end of 2001. With the generous support of BCA Wickham parish (including Roebourne) was reopened in May 2009.
WHEN DOES OUR CONGREGATION MEET?
10.00am: We meet each week at the Wickham Community Hall. As a church we are committed to the Bible and so our times of meeting together have teaching the Bible at their centre. We also provide a Sunday School for children. After the service we meet in the same building for fellowship and morning tea.
WHO IS OUR MINISTER?
