History and Architecture:

The Church was built in 1861 by John Hackness and his son James. It was built of bluestone and rubble on 2 acres of land donated by Thomas Walker.  It was Officially opened on 8 August 1863 thanks to the generosity of Mr John Stewart who paid for the roof.

On 14 January 1944 the original church was destroyed by bush fires but a meeting of 22 residents with the Archdeacon of Geelong (The Right Reverend Donald Baker), presiding at the home of Mrs Lampard unanimously decided to re build the church.
