History and Architecture:

The Kiama Independent reported on 11th July , 1872 that the new Milton Congregational Church was erected on an acre of land purchased from Mr. John Bicknell for £30 and was in close proximity to the township of Milton, not more than a quarter of a mile from the site of Wesleyan Chapel. Style Architecture, Gothic, the building is really first-class rubble masonry, all quoins and facings of hewn stone. The roof is of galvanised iron, windows (double) glazed with cathedral glass. Dimensions are given as 49 ft. by 29 ft. Total cost of building, including purchase of land, seating and all complete, ready for worship, was £700.

The Church was sold around 2017, with the number of local worshippers falling, services were moved to Ulladulla.
