History and Architecture:

The Sydney Mail and New South Wales Advertiser in an article on 5 June 1875 noted, "On the 27th ultimo, the Foundation stone of the new Presbyterian Church, at Mudgee, was laid by Mrs Dickson. The architect was Thomas Rowe. There was a large attendance present there being some 300 or 400 people in attendance. The Freemasons, decked out in the full regalia of their order, walked in procession to the grounds followed by the members of the Protestant Alliance Association. The Mudgee Volunteer Band led the way, playing appropriate sacred tunes".

The new Church was opened by the Rev. Dr. Steel on 10th March, 1878. There were large attendances at the services. Dr. Steel preached in the morning and the Rev. Dr. Geikie, minister of Bathurst. preached in the evening. The choir was conducted by Mr. Taylor who presided at the harmonium.
