St Michael's Uniting Church
St Michael’s Uniting Church
St Michael’s Uniting Church was originally built in 1839, but was knocked down and rebuilt in 1866 by Joseph Reed, who also designed the Melbourne Exhibition Building and The Melbourne Town Hall. Joseph Reed designed the church in Lombardic style due to his appreciation for this late Roman architectural tradition. The minister who was in charge during 1866 wanted to reflect a theatre-like design so everyone could look onto and hear the preacher. The church practices contemporary preaching and focuses on embracing their inner well-being.
