The Altar Sanctuary and Vestry were part of the renovations to commemorate the 50th anniversary of St Thomas Lutheran Church from 1904 to 1954. The foundation stone for the church was laid on the 4th March 1904 and the church was opened for worship in August 1904. 

The congregation of St. Thomas's Lutheran Church, Stockwell, celebrated its fiftieth jubilee and the re-dedication of the renovated church recently. Renovations include a vestry, altar niche, carpets, baptismal font, and leadlight windows, at a total cost of more than £2,000. Pastor H. F. W. Roehrs conducted the morning service. The church was packed to capacity, and the overflow filled the institute. To meet this situation, Pastor Proeve preached in the church, and Pastor H. Stiller, Loxton, in the institute. The pastors then changed over, Pastor Stiller to the church, and Pastor Proeve to the institute.
