History and Architecture:

By 1912 the Presbyterians of Gilgandra were in a position to construct a church building and decided to ‘build one that would meet the requirements of a growing congregation for some time’. A building capable of seating 250 people was designed by Messrs. Power and Andrews of Sydney. Mr. R. J. Carson undertook construction under the supervision of Mr. Watson, architect of Dubbo.

A Foundation stone reads, " This stone was laid by the Right Rev Robert Kay M.A. 17.4.1912".

The Church was opened at 3pm on Wednesday 21st August by the Rev M.A. Henry.
