The honour roll commemorates men and women from the church who served in World War One.  It was unveiled in 1916 with additional names being added at a later date. 

A national service for the unveiling of a roll of honor of those who have enlisted and who were associated with the church was held at St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church, Colac, on Saturday, when there was a large congregation. The service was of a patriotic nature, appropriate hymns being chosen, the choir rendering Professor Rentoul's Battle Hymn. The Rev. K. Forster read the names on the Honor Roll.
