An extract on display from the old minute books records: Meeting was held on the 4th April 1936 for the purpose of erecting a church on land donated by Mr G Streeting.

Mr A Nixon donated the logs. Mr J Woods sawed the timber.  Messrs R Hunt and J Streeting built the church assisted by Mr J McClelland. Meetings were held at Mrs Elizabeth McIlveen's home.

The church was opened on 5th December 1936. Mrs E C McIlveen turned the key which was handed to her by Mr C H W Peters.

The church was eventually taken over by the Presbyterian Church and subsequently re-opened on 6/11/1994 by the Presbytery Moderator, the Rev John McIntyre.
