This little family church sits in the ground of Tomago House at Tomago just a short drive from Newcastle NSW Australia. The Windeyer family established Tomago House in 1840 and both the house and church were designed by Maria Windeyer, the wife of Richard. The oak tree next to the church was said to have been brought to Australia by Maria in her sewing basket and when found was planted there. The sandstone for both the house and the church was quarried at Muree and transported by bullock team, then boat, then another bullock team to the site. Since 1946 the chapel has been owned by the Methodist Church but the family still marry there.
