[edit] History

The first church on this site was built in 1862 on land donated by the Rev. John Raven who took up a large farm in this area, named Ravenswood. The present church was opened in 1932. The lynch gate, given in memory of the Gresson family, was constructed in 1903.

It is thought that of the two Woodend cemeteries, the Anglican one was consecrated first, as it is known that there are some of the Methodist faith interred there from 1864.
