Stawell Uniting Church, Sunday Mass & Service Times, Address, VIC

It’s no surprise that many visitors marvel at the church’s stunning architecture. It was built in 1868 by Robert Alexander Love; a famous architect, during the height of the gold rush. Inside, the church also has many other notable features including open timber scissor roof trusses, timber wainscot dados, stained glass, a central timber pulpit with Gothic panel enrichments, and much more.

The pipe organ is a major highlight in the Stawell Uniting Church’s interior. It was built by JE Dodd in 1920; a renowned organ builder hailing from Adelaide. Aside from being a focal point within the interiors, the pipe organ served as a symbol of victory and peace from the war.

The tower’s three-dimensional form is enhanced by a projecting gable end, while the base of the tower features double timber doors and inscribed with Gothic reliefs. Inside the church is also an awe-inspiring organ, made in 1920 and was a symbol used to give gratitude for peace.

Stawell Uniting Church is located at 9 Scallan Street in Stawell, Victoria.
