Comments

"The first service of worship in Ipswich (then known as "Limestone") was held on 28 January 1848. A congregation was established on 30 April of that year, and a simple timber chapel was opened on 30 July 1849. The present building, known originally as "The Wesley Chapel, Ipswich" was opened in 1858, making it the oldest bulding in Queensland in continuous use as a church. ( Geoffrey Cox - The RHSQ Bulletin - February 2015 No. 793. ).

More historical information/photographs of the church/congregation are invited. Photographs uploaded 30/10/2016.
