David Mitchell 1871, Henry H. Kemp 1915

Description

First founded in 1838, the church’s original temporary wooden building at the west end of Collins Street made way for one of Melbourne’s most iconic buildings. Constructed between 1873 and 1874, the Gothic Revival-style Scots’ Church was designed to be the most beautiful building in Australia.

What's On

Take yourself through the church and experience a demonstration of the magnificent Rieger Organ, or join for a traditional church service on Sunday morning, featuring the organ and the world-class Scots' Church Choir.

There will also be virtual tours of the inside of the organ, inside of the spire, and the lighting system throughout the church building's 150 years.
