All Saints Wickham Terrace, Brisbane

2.3
All Saints Anglican Church is a heritage-listed church at 32 Wickham Terrace, Spring Hill, City of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. First founded in 1862, the current building designed by Benjamin Backhouse was completed in 1869, making it the oldest Anglican church in Brisbane. For most of its history, it has been identified with the High Church or Anglo-Catholic tradition within Anglicanism. It was added to the Queensland Heritage Register on 21 October 1992.HistoryThis single-storeyed stone church, the oldest Anglican Church in Brisbane, was erected in 1861, and rebuilt in 1869, for the Wickham Terrace District Anglican congregation. It is one of the few remaining parish churches in Queensland owned under the colonial provision of private trustees of church property.The Church of England was the first church to be established in Queensland. In 1849 the site for St Johns church on William Street was granted, with the church being consecrated in 1854. The Wickham Terrace land was granted to the Anglican Church in 1856, although the first deed of grant was dated September 1865, and was originally intended as the site for an Anglican Cathedral. The Diocese of Brisbane was formed in 1859 with Edward Tufnell as the first Bishop of Brisbane, taking office in 1860, and designating St Johns as the pro-Cathedral.

  • Most beautiful church in Brisbane hands down. Prob strayes too far into anglo papsim rather than being a anglo Catholic anglican church but still far superioir to the cathedral down the street
  • A very beautiful old church steeped in history and stunning Stained Glass Windows
  • The Church looks great even from the outside, unfortunately open only to measurement. Who has the chance should miss her definitely.
