From St Andrew’s Uniting Church Website

St Andrew’s was built during 1904 under the supervision of its architect George D. Payne. It was opened and dedicated as a Presbyterian Church in 1905. Situated on the corner of Creek Street and Ann Street, the red brick and concrete building has been a Brisbane landmark since its construction in the days of the horse and cart. Its design with strong architectural forms including prominent tower, semi-circular arched openings and steeply pitched gables brilliantly exploits the potential of the constrained sloping site.

This church building is an excellent example of the ecclesiastical architecture emerging in the late 1800s of Romanesque and Byzantine influences as opposed to the Gothic style. It is one of the earliest buildings in Brisbane employing this Romanesque detail and form. Other significant features include the early church seating, elders’ chairs and communion table, open auditorium, prominent pipe organ and tiered chancel.
