  • 2 May 1881, Diocese of Melbourne. Official Notices. APPOINTMENTS.—Mr. Jonas Youlden, to be Reader at North-west Moira; in the archdeaconry of Beechworth.11
  • 23 May 1944, Numurkah District's Early History. The Church Of England. Article No. 53
    The Church of England is that portion of the universal Church of Christ located in England having for its ministers bishops, priests and deacons, and being legally and historically continuous with the Church of most ancient times. It acknowledges the supremacy of the Crown, and has always had a national character. Christianity came to England at a very early period, and it is very probable that its early establishment there was a result of communications with eastern countries. It is the principle religion in Australia in the order of numerical strength. In Victoria the Church of England is ecclesiastically divided into six dioceses. Numurkah is now situate in the Diocese of Wangarratta.
    The weatherboard church in Numurkah was erected in 1885, on one-half acre of ground, which had been purchased for this purpose. In the statistics of the Diocese of Melbourne, for the year 1885, the Church is referred to under the "Beechworth Archdeanery." The approximate number of annual services are shown as 215, and the accommodation is sufficient for 550 persons, of whom the usual attendance at the principal Sunday services is given as 190. The number of Sunday-school scholars is quoted as 35, of whom 25 regularly attended. These comprised 13 boys and 12 girls, and the teachers numbered three. During the first year the Church was open there were three marriages and six burials. Amongst these statistics is a reference to the Deanery of Echuca which then comprised, inter alia, the "Readers' District" of Numurkah.
    In 1885-6 the Rev. Henry Wills Lane occupied the pulpit. In the latter year he left for Omeo, and the Rev. Jonas Youlden took his place. Mr T. G. Guyatt was the honorary reader. His duties were to assist the minister by reading the Lessons at services. In 1890 the Rev. Youlden took charge of the Shepparton Church, and his place was taken by Rev. Wm. Dalton. Mr Herbert Turner (solicitor) and Mr T E Crowther had in the meantime been the Church secretaries.12
