St Albans Anglican Church


St Alban's Church of England was built 1864-69 to the design of famous English Architect Sir George Gilbert Scott, under the supervision of E.T. Blackett and J.H. Hunt. It is unique as the only known church of his design to be built in Australia. In the 1880s the wooden bell tower and the fence, both designed by John Horbury Hunt were added. In 1914 the clock and bells were provided to the tower in memory of Archdeacon White.

St Alban's took five years to complete and was dedicated by Bishop Tyrrell on 17th June, 1869. It stands as a memorial to the faith of the early settlers of New South Wales.

St Alban's is unusual as the parish endowed an annual organ scholarship in the memory of Father Geoffrey, later Bishop Parker. It is awarded through competition carrying a cash prize of AUD1000, a generous amount for a regional parish.
