St Brigid’s Church Hall, VIC, Eastern Maar Country
St Brigid’s Church Hall stands on the traditional lands of the Eastern Maar People.
They say necessity is the mother of all invention, and in 2006 when the local community of Crossley, population 215, learned their local church and hall were to be sold they formed the Friends of St Brigid’s Association Inc. to secure this valuable slice of community heritage.
The Friends raised enough funds and took out a community mortgage to buy the precinct, now known as the St Brigid’s Australian-Irish Cultural Heritage and Community Centre.
Their aim is to provide a space for an exciting cultural experience that tells the story of Irish settlement within South West Victoria – of which music undoubtedly plays an important role.
An imposing red brick building, St Brigid’s Church Hall continues to provide a beating cultural and community heart for this lovely little rural community, 3 and a half hours drive west of Melbourne.
