History and Architecture:

Originally all denominations in this beautiful farming community met for worship in a wooden building which served as both Church and Parsonage. Though intended for all those of protestant evangelical persuasion the first preacher in 1857 was Mr Ashe and Anglican lay preacher.

A Mrs L Kerr came to the rescue of the Anglicans to build the English church as it is called to this day. Mrs Kerr's efforts resulted in a fund of £600 plus a further £200 for essential furnishings and so arrangements were made and the foundation stone was laid by the same good lady on 10 March 1868.
