Bangalow - Former Church (now Pottery) (26 Jun 2008)

A former country church now converted into a pottery in Bangalow.

Brisbane - Buranda - Former Brisbane Spiritual Alliance Church (6 Jan 2008)

Something you don't see everyday is a closed Spiritualist Church. This one is on Logan Road at Buranda, was originally established in 1938, but now appears to be home to a firm of marketing consultants,

Brisbane - Fortitude Valley - Brookes St Former Church

The former (Brisbane) Fortitude Valley Wesleyan Church and Hall were erected in 1887 and 1870 respectively, with the hall being the original church. It was closed in 1977 with the establishment of the Uniting Church in Australia. It is a beautiful complex, now called Gregory Place and Gregory Hall. See the Queensland EPA website entry for the full history of the site. It is directly opposite the lovely Holy Trinity Anglican Church (see elsewhere on this site).

Brisbane - Kedron - Former Church ABC Childcare (26 Aug 2007)

This former church and hall on Ninth Avenue at Kedron in Brisbane are now an ABC Childcare centre. If anyone has any further information on the history of the site I would be very pleased to hear from you.

Brisbane - Nundah - Former Church in Chapel St

This former church on the aptly name Chapel Street in Nundah, Brisbane is now the gallery and studio of the Watercolor Society of Queensland. It is right next door to a very large, modern (and very uninteresting architecturally) Baptist Centre so I'm guessing it was the local Baptist Church before the new premises was built. Its plain construction internally supports this theory. If anyone has any further information on the history of the site I would be very pleased to hear from you.

Brisbane - South Brisbane - Former South Brisbane  Presbyterian Church (1885) (6 Jan 2008)

This magnificent old Presbyterian Church near South Bank in South Brisbane is showing the passage of time. It now houses a firm dealing in props of all kinds.

Coominyah - Former St Martins Anglican Chirch (Dec 2006)

The former St Martins Anglican Church in Coominya is now abandoned and rotting away. Built in 1922, it is visually similar to nearby St Francis Xavier Catholic Church. It is unusual to see these ex-churches not taken up as interesting housing. Desley of the Anglican Diocese of Brisbane archives kindly informed me that the church "is first mentioned as the parish of Esk in 1922, then Parish of Brisbane Valley in 1929. On the 24th June 1922 the church of St Martin was dedicated by coadjutor Bishop Le Fanu. The Architects were Atkinson and Conrad. The church closed on the 27th November 2005 by Assistant Bishop Nolan."

Esk - St John Biarra Masonic Lodge (Dec 2006)

St John Biarra Masonic Lodge occupies what appears to be a former church building in Esk.

Forest Hill - Disused Church (believe Anglican)

Nestled in a side street, this "recycled" church in Forest Hill has a new concrete driveway and appears to be set for a new life as a residence.

Forest Hill - Recycled Church

Another "recycled" church in Forest Hill - this one has been moved onto a property on the road leading into town from the highway.

Abandoned Methodist Church in Marburg

What an interesting old site is the former Marburg Methodist Church. You turn off the street into an old-fashioned yard - with the old fences you can just imagine the yard full of horse-drawn buggies and horses tied up to the fence. The path up to the front entrance has tall grass as it can't be easily mown, creating quite an unusual scene. Please contact me if you know more about the history of this church.

Former Church, now a private residence

A former church next to the playground in Marmor, now in use as a private residence. I wonder if it was a part of a grander complex, perhaps including a convent, in olden days?

Please feel free to contact me with your feedback or comments, especially any extra background or information you may be able to provide, and while you're here why not sign my guest book so I know you've been visiting.
