The St Peter's Anglican Church Box Hill is part of the Parish of Box Hill and the Diocese of Melbourne. 'Anglican services were held in Box Hill from 1883 in a small brick church on the corner of Frankcom St and Whitehorse Rd. On 18 September 1889 the Bishop of Melbourne, Field Flowers Goe, laid the foundation stone on this site and the little church was transported to the site that year. It was replaced by a much larger wooden church, with a spire, in 1908, with the original church being used as a Hall. Much of this wooden building was destroyed in a fire in 1943, and a second fire in 1949 razed the rebuilt church to the ground...the current Peace Memorial Church...first stage was completed in 1951, and the second stage in 1971' 1. More historical information/photographs of the church/congregation are invited. Photographs uploaded 20/1/2019.
