History and Architecture:

Originally a Presbyterian Church. The original piece of land the church was built on was sold to the trustees on 31 January 1890 by the Hon. James Campbell of St Kilda.

The sucessful tenderer (to build the new church) appears to be J.W. Dent of South Geelong. The church opened for its first service on 7 February 1892.

Additions to the church were made in 1912.
