A series of double stained glass windows erected in memory of pioneers of the church and district. 

The foundation stone for the new memorial church was laid on 24 March 1926 by Mrs C J Poole, with the completed building opened in a special ceremony on 12 September 1926. At the ceremony in 1926, Padre Gault unveiled a Swedish pearl granite honour roll tablet in memory of Private Poole and Lance-Corporal Robinson and dedicated six memorial windows in memory of local pioneers.
