History and Architecture:

On 20 March 1915, a meeting was held at The Summit Railway Siding, for the purpose of considering the offer of a quarter acre of land on Mr Burnett's property for the purpose of erecting a Methodist Church. The offer was accepted, and a subscription list opened and 36 pounds 17 shillings was donated at the meeting.

The builder was Mr W. Wilmot of Stanthorpe. An organ was purchased for 24 pounds 16 shillings, twenty-four hymn books and 10 seats were also purchased. The building (unlined) cost 172 pounds. The opening took place on Wednesday, 18th August 1915. It was dedicated for worship by Rev H.M. Wheller. The church was lined in 1916 and the vestry added in 1926.

The last service in this church was on the 18th November 2017.
