History and Architecture:

The Church was opened by Bishop Kennion on 1 February 1884.

Many years before Mr Justice Gwynne had given an acre of land in the village of Cowandilla for church purposes. This was sold for £150 and an allotment bought in a more central position in the Thebarton area. This is the present site of the church. Due to the energetic work of the Reverend F.R. Coghlan a contract was let and the church quickly built.

Immediatley upon completion of the building Coghlan handed over the care of the Mile End district to the Bishops's Home Mission Society.
