History and Architecture:

The land upon which the Anglican Church of St Peter by the Lake, Paynesville is built was made available by a Crown Grant in 1892 for the Diocese of Melbourne.

In 1958 an architect Wystan Windows, a leader in ecclesiastical architecture in Victoria was engaded. The tender for construction of the building was let to a Gippsland firm, Lemchens & Skult. Construction work began in April 1960 and the Foundation Stone was laid by the Right Reverend David Garnsey, Bishop of Gippsland on 31 July of the same year.
