The distinctive $1.5 million church on the hillside looking across to Lake Walyungup is likely to become a landmark for travellers on Mandurah Road.

Pastor Stephen Hart (41) said the impressive building would become home to the church’s nearly 300 members who shared a church with a Rockingham congregation since 2007.

‘It is very exciting to see the church take shape from initial drawings to where it is now,’ he said.

‘The open day is a great opportunity for people to view this brand new facility in their local community and to find out more about us and our faith in God.’

The open day is from 10am to 2pm tomorrow with a free sausage sizzle, coffee, cake and children’s activities. The church will hold services on Sunday at 9.30am and 3.30pm.

The first Free Reformed church was started in Armadale in 1951, with 17 now across Australia.
