A plaque records: Heritage Place - Purga Church - The community of Purga developed during the 1860s, opening its first school in 1871. The church was built as a non-denominational church in late 1922 with money and materials donated by local people. The Lessors were George Harding, Richard Thomas Morgan, George Chant, Julius Schubel, John Ellison, Ernest Henry Hughes and Malcolm Dick. There was a yearly rental of one shilling to be paid on the first day of November in every year. Generations of families still living in the district have worshipped at the church. After changed circumstances rendered its tenure less secure, the Purga Friends Association Inc moved the church to its present location in 1995 because they feared its loss. - An initiative of Ipswich City Council (0085).
