History and Architecture:
About 1906-7 Church services began at Chermside in the Public Hall, later School of Arts, on the corner of Hall St and Gympie Road where the original Council Library was built in 1952. The services were conducted by the Rev Cyril Mahew from St Francis' College at Nundah.7 The church paid a rent of £1/5/0 ($2.50 or $115 in 2001 values)8 per quarter for the use of the hall.
The new church, which measured 36 feet by 30 feet (11m x 9.2m), was completed by early October. A Reading, or Prayer Desk, from which the office of the day was read for Morning and Evening Prayer was presented. Also, Mr Pluknett and his son promised a Lectern which would hold the Bible.
A plaque on the Bell Tower reads, " Ring out to the Glory of God and recall with Thanksgiving the Ministry of his Priest Jack Kruger Rector of All Saints Chermside 1961 - 1973 Dies 23rd May 1978 - This Bell Tower was dedicated by + John Grindrod Archbishop of Brisbane on 14th December 1980."
