Comments

This is one of the oldest continuously operating churches in Queensland. It houses a famous wood bellows organ installed in 1903. The church presents a number of architectural features traditionally associated with the Presbyterian faith. They include the pointed double entry doors and characteristic triple-tiered transept and the high pulpit centrally placed to emphasise preaching of the Word of God fundamental to reformed church belief. The absence of a centre aisle follows a tradition begun in Lutheran churches after formal processions ceased to be a feature of services, and is designed to stress the community dimension of reformed church congregations.

More historical information/photographs of the church/congregation are invited. Photographs uploaded 31/12/2015
