History and Architecture:

A small random stone hall church with slate roof and stone bell gablet, built in 1860-61. The church was built on land which was a gift of George Warren who subdivided the town of Williamstown in 1858, and the Warrens maintained their support for St Peter's as did other local families including the Gilbert, Ross, Browne, and Manser families and other early settlers in the district.

The entry porch of the church was rebuilt in 1929 and the vestry added, in memory of Mr. and Mrs John Warren. There is  an  adjacent hall, constructed in 1891, which served as a school room and was extended in 1930.
