History and Architecture:

The first church was erected in 1890. The second was built in 1909. The successful contractor was Mr. Stay of Allora. The floor has a vestry 'raised to 6 feet. A noticeable feature of the building is its great height compared to its size. This ensures breathing space and ventilation. The church proper, which seats 300, was built on 4 feet piles with the session house and slope from the main entrance to the back, which ensures a full view from every seat. A small round tower on the front part of the roof gives the building a striking appearance.

The building was opened on Wednesday, 3rd March 1909 by the Moderator-General of the Presbyterian Church of Australia, the Rt. Rev. Peter Robertson. The attendance exceeded 300, the majority of whom were ladies. Among the visitors were Mr. F.Crayson, M.L.A., Ald. Shilliday, Mayor of Warwick and Ald. McMillan, Mayor of Allora.
