The St Andrew's Uniting Church, Allora is part of the Eastern Downs Parish and the Uniting Church Synod of Queensland. The earliest Presbyterian services in Allora were held about 1854, with a permanent congregation established on the arrival of the Rev Thomas Kingsford in 1873. Plans for a church building began in 1874, with the completed church building opened on 28/9/1879. by the Rev W Budge. It was replaced by the present chuch building, which was opened on 21/11/1906, by the Moderator of the Presbyterian Church of Australia, Dr Caulston. The 1879 building was relocated to Goomburra in 1912, to become the Presbyterian Church building there. More historical information/photographs of the church/congregation are invited. Photographs uploaded 02/03/2016 & 22/11/2022.
