The first Anglican services were held in the original school building erected on the site about 1857.

The first Service held in the 'new' church building was conducted by the Rev Thomas Quinton on 28/5/1882. For the next ten years Presbyterian Congregation Services were also held in the church. Combined use of the church with the Presbyterians ceased in 1892, when the Presbyterians moved to their own site at the corner of Lyons & Collingwood Streets. About this time the church was dedicated to St Andrew.
