One of the first open-air church services on Warruwi/Goulburn Island in 1916 attended by community members, with Reverend James Watson, the first teacher, Constance Amy Corfield and Mr and Mrs A.E. Lawrence. In her diary entry for 10 September 1916 Amy says that she attended church service in the morning out in the open air; played the organ with much pleasure. The photograph is thought to have been taken by Ted Ryko, Darwin's famous cyclist/photographer when he visited the mission in December 1916.
