History and Architecture:
The church was built in 1872 from locally sourced handmade bricks, timber and shingles. It replaced an earlier slab church built in 1864. The building consists of a rectangular double height nave with square projections at both ends. The gable roofs over the two projecting rooms are lower than the nave roof. At the eastern end is a 1972 concrete block entry vestibule that replaced a timber entry porch.
A plaque reads, "1864 - 1964 To Commemorate the Centenary of the arrival of the Lutheran Pioneers in this area who in 1872 erected this church. PSLM 00.V1".
