A history plaque records: The Presbyterian Church of St Stephen's was built in 1873 on a half-acre site in the centre of the township and given by Mr John Morrice. The first record of a Presbyterian Service in the district is recorded by Rev W Hamilton's diary 'I preached at Wingello and the neighbouring stockade on 26th November 1837. - The foundation stone was laid by Miss Rankin and a bottle containing a copy of the Sydney Morning Herald and a sketch of plans and specifications of the building was placed in vacant place under the stone. This was lost when new foundations were laid. The opening took place on 2 October 1873 with the Rev S K Mackenzie MA preaching 'an excellent and impressive sermon' to a large crowd. - The solid little stone church was built alongside the main road but less than 20 years later it was described as 'a stone building of decidedly plain aspect commonly called Scot's Church. Sadly, it is out of repair and only used for Sunday School'. It was re-opened for church services in 1916 - In 1977 the congregation voted unanimously for unity, and St Stephen's became a Uniting Church.
