History and Architecture:

The first church was opened in 1872. From 1952 to 1980 the Catholic church functioned in a refurbished Nissen hut. Before the present church was built a primary school was opened in 1959 on an adjoining site.

The peaceful garden surrounds of St John's Church is the setting for the St John's Memorial Garden.  Plaques to remember those who have died have been placed on the bell tower in the driveway of the Church and are now being placed on the wall outside the east door of the church.
