History and Architecture:

The church is in Gothic Polychrome style and was built in two stages, the first between 1866 and 1867 and the second between 1869 and 1870. It was designed by Reed and Barnes. It was the first Polychrome brick church in Australia. The builder was John Pigdon. The tower at the northeast corner was never erected and in 1935 was substituted by the present porch and Bell-cote.

A foundation stone was laid on 14 September 1935 by Bishop J.J. Booth recognising the completion of the church.
