Cairns Presbyterian Church
Places of Significance - Cairns Regional Council

In 1901, the Reverend James Pattison conducted Cairns' first Presbyterian church service in the Oddfellows Hall. The first Presbyterian Church, St Andrews, was built in 1905. It was a timber-framed building and was damaged by three cyclones but survived until 1953. A new St Andrews Church (or Kirk) was built on the site in the 1950s. It was designed by the architect Thomas Jamieson Roy (1915 - 1982). The Church is now used by New Life Ministries, a Presbyterian based fellowship.
