History and Architecture:

The first Presbyterian service in Camberwell was held in the old Shire Hall on 6 September 1885.

The site on which the present Church stands was purchased for 375, and almost immediately the first building was erected, at a cost of 566. It was a very plain, weatherboard structure, and seated about 200 persons. This first church was opened on 6 June 1886.

The original church hall, adjacent to the church in Waterloo Street, was built in 1925. In 1965 this hall was demolished and the existing hall built on the same site. The existing manse at 20 Waterloo Street was purchased in 1934.
