The plaque commemorates the formation of the Angle Grove Lutheran congregation in 1875 and 1876 and was unveiled at the site of the church which was worshipped in between 1891 and 1909 when a new church was built in the town. 

The first Lutheran members arrived in the district in 1874, and were visited by several ministers belonging to the Lutheran Synod of South Australia. Services were held in the houses of the congregation. In 1891 a church was built, but it had become too small, and it was found necessary to build a larger structure in a more central position in Brinkworth.
