History and Architecture:

The East Brisbane Primitive Methodist congregation was established in 1888, following estate sales in East Brisbane which freed up land and encouraged residential development. The parish, originally in temporary accommodation in Didsbury Street, relocated to Norman St in 1890.

The church was designed by architectural firm Hall and Prentice and constructed by J. Hood, while the smaller tabernacle was used as a hall and Sunday School room.
