History and Architecture:

The foundation stone was laid on 20th October, 1858 by Rev. D.J. Draper, secretary of the Australasian Wesleyan Conference and Chairman of the Victoria District. The Rev John Newton was minister in charge. The architects were Crouch and Wilson and the contractor, a Mr Wood. The church was opened in early 1859, with the "Kilmore Examiner" (3rd February, 1S59)stating that the rear part was of brick to allow for enlargement.

A coursed basalt rubble church, designed after the early English Parish Church manner. Dressings and quoined architraves are of freestone these include a gabled belfry at the roof gable apex, a scrolled parapet capping and caps to the angle buttresses. The design is undistinguished, although the building is near to original

This church was sold around 2012.
