The first Congregational Church in SA was formed in December 1837 by the English Rev. THOMAS QUINTON STOW and 10 others.
They originally congregated at a temporary place of worship on North Terrace.
Rev. Stow was a highly regarded preacher and educator.
On 12 October 1836, he had been accepted for service by the newly formed Colonial Missionary Society and arrived in SA in October 1837.
George Mawbey may have been a member of his congregation.
