Comments

The church was founded in 1854 at the height of the Ballarat Gold Rush. The first services were held in a tent on what is today the car park. St Paul's first church was opened on 4/3/1855.

It was decided in 1857 to build a church for 450. By 1862 it was decided to rebuild to hold 800.

More historical information/photographs of the church/congregation are invited. Photographs uploaded 11/3/2017.
