About the church

21 Coral Street (corner of Coral and Oak Streets - see in a map). Fundraising was conducted from 1933 to build a church on land donated by the estate of H. S. Williams; the site was described as being at the junction of the Ravenshoe road—the main road is now quite some distance away. The church was designed by architect Mr. V. M. Brown, of Cairns, built by Mr. A. Simpson, also of Cairns, and blessed and opened Bishop John Heavey on Sunday 26 Sepember 1937. It was later extended.
