History and Architecture:

On 23rd April 1886 a block of land donated by Mrs I. Watson with half acre adjoining at a cost of £5 was accepted. It was also moved that a salary of £40 per annum be guaranteed to the minister. Names of trustees were to be submitted to Presbytery for approval, and application made to have the church added to the Kerang/Durham Ox charge.

The tender by Mr. J.G. Uren for £230 was accepted subject to the understanding "that sole plates, joists and sleepers be of red-gum, principals of oregon and balance of frame hardwood". The building was to be 24ft by 35ft with 14ft walls exclusive of porch and vestry.

A new Church was built and opened on Saturday 14th May 1966. The dedication was performed by Rev A.M. Dickie Moderator.
