History and Architecture:

The land for the church was first purchased in 1834 after a discrepancy over the land where the church was to be built. The Foundation stone was laid on 22 June 1869 by Charles De Cane Esq Governor of Tasmania and the consecration service took place on 22 June 1870.

Francis Butler designed the complete building and superintended the first stage of construction, the nave of the church as it stands at present. His drawings and the complete correspondence associated with his work are still preserved in the church's records. Butler, a pillar of the Glenorchy Church, whose memory is preserved in the two memorial windows in the west wall of the church.
