History and Architecture:

The Parish of Wentworth was formed in 1871 and Reverend William Cocks organised the building of the Church (believed to be based on an English structure). The materials were brought to the site by barge, although locally made bricks were also used in the construction.

It was designed by Reverend A. D. Soares of Queanheyan and built in 1871. On 14 August 1874 the foundation stone of the rectory was laid by Mrs William Crozier of Moorna Station. The nave is 55ft x 25ft, and 34ft from the top of the roof to the floor. The roof is lined with pine and varnished.
