The foundation stone of the chapel marks the centenary of the All Saints Church from 1862 to 1962.

A large bluestone church, the nave of which was erected in 1862 to the design of local architect Joseph L Shaw. The church was greatly extended first in 1918 by the addition of a sweeping semi-circular apse of a somewhat French character designed by Alexander North and in 1928 by a south transept and spire designed by Louis R Williams. The building contains notable stained glass by Ferguson & Urie and a distinctive internal roof structure.
