History and Architecture:

In September 1890 the Reverends John Cameron wrote to the Register of the Diocese recommending the purchase of land n the Colac road and indicating the hope that a small successful church of a permanent character could be built as the place increased in population.

An Architect's plan for a building estimated to cost £350 was drawn up in 1894. Built by James Mills it had cost just over  £100. In a Sunday School was built.
