A wattle and daub church built by Rev Richard Johnson (Chaplain of the First Fleet) in 1793 was burned down in 1798. A new stone church, named St Philip's, was opened in 1810. This was replaced by the current building in 1856. Rev Johnson also conducted the first Christian service in Australia on 3 February, 1788.
