History and Architecture:
In 1872 the church moved from Northdown to Latrobe a town of some importance during this era. Early in 1879 W. Moffit visited New Ground near Moriarty a populous agricultural district. He shared the gospel message and in a short time a gathering of people became Christians and were baptized. A Church of Christ was established in 1880 and it continued to prosper.
By 1893 the population of Latrobe had declined and Devonport was becoming a more central location. In July 1952 the present church building was opened with approximately 40 to 50 people attending at this time.
