'The Church of the Incarnation at Jundah was built in 1916 and, by July that year, was ready for dedication. However, rain made the roads inpassable, so the Anglican Bishop of Rockhampton, the Right Reverend George Halford (himself a former Bush Brother) was unable to come to Jundah to perform the dedication. The people of Jundah had to wait for a year for the dedication of their new church, which took place in 14 October 1917. As planned, the building was dedicated to the glory of God and in memory of the late Rev Frederick Hulton-Sams1.

In 1952, the Anglican Church moved Jundah's memorial Church of the Incarnation from its original site to its present site, a block of land donated to the church at the cormer of Macrossan and Garrick streets. After the move and extensive repairs to the building, the Anglican Bishop of Rockhampton, the Right Rev J A G Housden, consecrated the site and re-opened the memorial Church on Tuesday 21 October 19522
