The Calvary Presbyterian Church, Brookton is part of the Westminister Presbyterian Church in Australia. The church building was erected about 1910. "The Baptists were among the first active religious groups in Brookton with the first service in town in 1903, and the Church opened in 1905, and a manse by 1908. By 1911 both properties became the property of the Church of Christ with only 4 Baptists remaining in town. The Church thrived until the early 1920s, including baptisms in Mile Pool and
local wine for sacrament. Mary (Miss) Jones came to Brookton in 1948, and purchased the church (and manse) from her own funds. Daughter of a Presbyterian Minister, Miss Jones was a pioneer missionary among the Aboriginal people. In 1950 she formed the Brookton-Pingelly Native Welfare, and inaugurated and ran Easter conventions until
1970, attracting Aboriginal devotees from throughout the state and nation. Miss Jones handed her church to the World Presbyterian Missions in 1970, but continued her ministry until her retirement in 1971, and passed away in 1977. The Hall was transported from the Water Supply Department in Pingelly. The Church became the Westminster Presbyterian 
Church, known as the Calvary Presbyterian Church" 1More historical information/photographs of the church/congregation are invited. Photographs uploaded 19/9/2018.
