Anglican Church (second St. Luke's Church). In 1887 the present church, rectory and hall sites were purchased and the Rector set about raising funds for the building of a more adequate and permanent church. On May 24, 1889, the foundation stone was laid by Bishop Merac Thomas and a memorial stone by Mr T W Hammond. £200 was subscribed that day. The original cost of the church was £1,500; later additions brought this up to £3,000.

Designed by A Blackett, a son of the early Australian Architect, it was licensed by Bishop Thomas on November 11, 1889 and consecrated on November 29, 1889 by Bishop Chalmers. In 1911 the chancel and vestries were added, the new chancel being consecrated on September 11, 1911 by Bishop Barlow.
