Church Overview

A striking Germanic style church designed by J Russel Mackenzie and built in 1875. Long and low, with a narrow, rectangular nave, an apse at the east end and a tower to the north. The interior features an imposing scissor-beam pine roof structure, a large Abbot and Smith organ installed in 1913 and stained glass windows by William Wilson and Gordon Webster. The sanctuary has a carved wooden communion table and a fairly tall pulpit, reached by wooden steps. Plans are currently in progress to extend the church to incorporate meeting rooms, kitchen, toilets and reception area.
