History and Architecture:
The earliest Church of England services were held in the dining room of the original Numurkah Hotel, a weatherboard building which occupied the whole of the site, where stands today the present Numurkah Hotel and the old State Savings Bank occupied by Maurice McNamara & Co. In the early 1880's services were held in the State School building. The first Church of England services recorded in the local press were held in the Mechanics Institute.
In 1884 the first block of land was purchased in Melville Street and the second block of land ajoining was purchased a year later which doubled the area. A Rectory was built on this some years later. In June, 1885, tenders were called for the erection of a wooden church. The Architect was Alan McDonald and the builder, Mr. Harrison.
A Foundation stone reads, " To the Glory of God this stone was blessed and set into position by Thomas, third Bishop of Wangaratta on the 22 day of Oct 1960. Louis R Williams Architect Louis Hamon Church Warden G.L. Perry Rector".
