History and Architecture:

The church's foundation stone was laid on 16 December 1095 by another congregation member, elder, benefactor and Mayor of the Borough of Caulfield Charles Duplan Lloyd. The old wooden structure was moved to the new site and used as a Sunday school, with the congregation using Malvern Town Hall for worship while their new structure was under construction. When finished, the new church seated 520 and was lavishly fitted out as a "total work of art" matching the architect's stylistic philosophy.
