Built in the Victorian period in the Neo-Gothic style
A Church has occupied this site since 1847. The present building has associations with the early history of the Presbyterian Church in Victoria, particularly with the Reverend James Forbes. Its architect, Charles Webb, was very important in nineteenth century Melbourne. His works include several Churches, of which this is notable example. Form and composition are typical of the Gothic Revival in Victoria. Arcading and mouldings around the front door and the tracery to the west window are interesting features.
