History and Architecture:

The building is in Gothic style with a gabled rood, pier buttresses and lancet arched windows. The exterior walls are tuck-pointed, red brick, cement rendered on the lower half and the roof is of corrugated iron. There are two additions to the rear, dating from 1919 and cl930. The interior fixtures such as the pews, altar and pulpit, were removed when the Methodist and Presbyterian Churches amalgamated.


The foundation stone of the church was laid in September 1905 by Wesley Maley MLC. It was opened and dedicated on Wednesday 6th December 1905, costing approximately £625 to build.
