History and Architecture:

The first service was conducted by the Rev George Faulds in the Court House (31 October). He is to become the first permanent minister at the Caulfield Presbyterian Church. In 1915 Architects are requested to invite fresh tenders for a new church. The tender for the new church was accepted for £2,787. A Foundation stone reads, " This stone was laid by A.P. Gardiner Esq on the 14th August 1915". A full history can be viewed here on the church website.
