History and Architecture:

In June 1906 it was decided to build a new church because of the activity owning to a revival in mining. One Hundred and fifty ponds had been collected (including a fifty pound grant from Bishop in Council) It was proposed to have the building erected by September, according to the Church of England Messenger.

On 16 September 1096 the Messenger says : New Church opened and dedicated by Archbishop Lowther Clarke.

The church was a square weatherboard building with a small front porch, set further back on the block than the present building. A bush fire in 1939 destroyed the church and out buildings.
