The Roll of Honour was originally the front of a "beautiful Soldiers' Memorial Communion Table", designed by architect Lange L Powell in memory of men and women of the church who lost their lives in World War One.  The ornate wooden carving in the central panel depicts wine and grapevines intertwined with a symbolic Crown of Thorns. The central panel also displays an image of the original church. Relocated three times when the congregation moved before amalgamating with St Andrew's Uniting Church in 1981, the honour roll is now housed within the Merrington Memorial Peace Chapel to recognise the sacrifice of the Wharf Street congregation.

The communion table which will be dedicated at the Wharf Street Congregational Church on the 14th November 1920 in a special service has been given by the congregation as a memorial of the sacrifice of the men and women of the church during the period of the European War 1914-1919. It has been made from the designs of Mr Lange. L. Powell.
