An unassuming former Presbyterian church retaining its balanced historic form of dignified simplicity, characteristic of this building type. Built in the 1830s by Reverend John King, it is set on an elevated site beside the main road and has simple form with a strong presence. The elevations are well balanced with a combination of scales between the church proper and the domestic scaled annexe to the south that houses the entrance lobby and ancillary spaces. Its unadorned interior reflects the plain expression of the exterior and is largely intact with historic pews and axially placed pulpit reflecting the centrality of Scripture in Presbyterian worship. The setting is enhanced by fine grave monuments.
