Windback Wednesday - Clayton Wesley Uniting Church
The Clayton Wesley Uniting Church on the corner of Portrush Road and The Parade, Beulah Park was built in 1883 and designed in a Gothic revival style by Edward Davies. The church features a high roofline and an asymmetrically placed 38-metre-tall spire. The spire features a carved relief sculpted by William J Maxwell that depicts 'The Presentation of Christ in the Temple'.
The 'old' church, constructed in 1855, is a stone and brick tuck-pointed chapel in simple Gothic revival style and remains at the rear of the main church today.
