.David Seddon arrived in Australia in 1848 to lead the first congregation at Christ Church, Acland Street St Kilda. He came with a dark history which has been provided to the Society by a contributor from Engand who has been investigating the Rev David Seddon and exploring his history by way of court transcripts. This sordid history has been collororated by work done by Liz Kelly confirming that in in 1868 he was again suddenly forced to depart- this time for England due to further accusations of misbehaviour........
Jeffrey Stafford, the author, submitted this story from England.
The book, by Jenny O’Donnell and with a forward by the Archbishop of Melbourne, reveals the story behind each of the church's many memorial stained glass windows, which celebrate the lives of prominent and less prominent citizens of early Melbourne. It will be launched by Dr Andrew Lemon OAM and copies will be available for purschase on the day. We welcome everyone to this important event.
