St. Andrew's Church of England Cemetery, Sprent

History:

Unfortunately some of the early records of the Sprent Church have been lost by the incidence of fire over the years. By 1867 the Sprent district was inhabited by several families including the McLarens, Goolds, & Moores.

The first church was erected as a result of working bees, and the initial service was held within on Sunday 3rd January, 1875. This Building was also used as a school.

The present building, St. Andrew's was consecrated by Bishop Montgomery of October 3rd., 1890, and the Rector, the Rev. Humphrey Davies was present on this occassion. St Andrew's possesses an elaborately carved baptismal font which was presented to the church as a thanks gift by Colonel Andrew Crawford to commemorate his 50th Wedding Anniversary in 1890.
