The Chinese Presbyterian Church, Surry Hills had its beginnings about 1884, in the work of the Chinese Mission, based around premises in Elizabeth and Goulburn Streets. This became more permanent in 1893, with the opening of its first building in Foster Street.  In 1910 it moved to Campbell Street, and to its present site in 1957. The present church building was opened on 5/7/1905 by the Moderator, and named in memory of the Rev James Fullerton who had opened the third Presbyterian church in Sydney at Pitt & Hays Street, South Sydney in 1838. This property had been resumed by the Governement for development of the railways, leading to the erection of this new building in Crown Street. More historical information/photographs of the church(es)/congregation(s) are invited. Photographs uploaded 8/2/2021.
