All Saints Church, Brisbane

All Saints Church, Brisbane

Founded in 1862, All Saints Church is the oldest Anglican church in Brisbane and the construction that you see today dates from 1869. It is located on Wickham Terrace, which is one of the most historical streets in the city. The land was acquired to be a sister congregation for Saint John’s Church of England and construction was led by the Bishop Tufnell, who also selected the church’s name. It was designed in the Gothic Revival style and features sandstone buttressed walls. From its very beginnings the church enjoyed a large and enthusiastic congregation and it is often known as “the Parish Church of the City of Brisbane.”

During its long history it has had high profile parishioners including two state premiers – Sir James Dickson and Sir Robert Ramsey McKenzie. The stained glass windows are the oldest in Queensland and there are significant sculptured art by well known Depression era sculptor Daphne Mayo. The church is now a heritage listed building in recognition of the important role it played in colonial Queensland. There are many scheduled services throughout the week and the church is open to visitors at other times. It is sometimes possible to find a person who can provide an informal tour of the interior and grounds of the church.
