Description:

Scarce colonial engraving of the first St Andrew’s Church at Lutwyche, Brisbane. The church was designed by the Brisbane architect R.G. Suter, which opened on 30 November 1866.

The land was originally purchased as a 47 acre lot by George and John Harris on 5 April, 1859. It was subdivided into once acre lots of which Judge Lutwyche purchased subdivision 16 of the original portion 195 on 12 January 1864. The Judge donated this block to the Church in 1865 in response to the unanimous decision by residents to build a church near Kedron Brook. On St Andrew’s Day (30 November) 1866 a Gothic-Style wooden church was opened, free of debt, due to public subscription. The stained glass windows depict the natures of Christ; the Evangelists; the Blessed Virgin Mary; Saints; Andrew, Alban, Augustine, David, George and St. Clare.
