(Sydney Morning Herald - 6 November 1878)  "BURWOOD WESLEYAN CHURCH -------<>---------- The memorial-stones of a new Wesleyan Church, at Burwood, were laid yesterday in the presence of about fifty ladies and gentlemen. After devotional exercises, the Rev. Mr. Hurst presented Mrs. W. Schofield with a mallet and trowel on behalf of the trustees, and, in doing so, expressed a hope that the lady would long live to take an active and useful part in such proceedings. The formal laying of the stone was then performed by Mrs. Schofield. The second stone was laid by Mrs. J. H. Fletcher, who was also presented with a mallet and trowel. The contractor for the stonework is Mr. Dowling, of Darlington, and for the finishing trades Messrs. Watson and Sons, of Petersham. Mr. William Boles is the architect."

(Sydney Morning Herald - 4 December 1879)   "THE new Wesleyan Church at Burwood was opened for divine worship on Tuesday afternoon, the service being conducted by the Rev. George Hurst. When completed it will be cruciform. The style is what is technically termed " Gothic of the geometrical period."

In 1970 the Church was sold to the Greek Orthodox Church of Australia. No other details are known. More historical information/photographs of the church/congregation are invited. Photograph uploaded 7/6/2018..
