Its heritage value is significant compared to other community churches in the Blayney parish.
Do not take this sacred and holy space away from the Carcoar community.
I am incensed at the thought; it will have a huge detrimental effect on all in that community.

The highly picturesque church located high above the town appears like a "guardian angel" with its shingled spire.
Being the second oldest church west of the Blue Mountains, is reason enough for keeping it.
It is such a magnet for all to the area.
As a tourist passing by the spire drew me in to that wonderful village.

They no doubt worked long and hard over the years to maintain this unique building.
The Carcoar community deserve better and should not have to pay "for the sins of their fathers" i.e. the abuses that occurred in the Anglican Church.
I'm appalled that the Bathurst Diocese has put this beautiful church up for sale.
No wonder the community are outraged at the proposal to sell it.
I support Ron Murray and the community in their endeavour to raise funds to purchase St Paul the Apostle Anglican Church in Carcoar for it to become a community church.
I wish them well in their endeavours and urge others to come on board to help save this historic and special edifice.
Good luck and may good fortune be on your side.
