Description

The Murwillumbah All Saints' Church was designed by architects Conrad and Gargett of Brisbane. It was opened and dedicated on All Saints' Day, 1 November 1960.

According to the Organ Historical Trust of Australia website, "The first recorded Anglican service was held in Murwillumbah on 26 September 1970 … The All Saints' congregation had worshipped at two previous sites before moving to the current location."

Within the church is a memorial plaque with two crossed flags: the Union Jack and the Australian Flag. The plaque states that the church was erected in Thanksgiving for peace and as a tribute to those who served and in loving memory of those who paid the supreme sacrifice in World Wars I and II and the Korean War, Malaya and Vietnam.

Apart from the above plaque there three rolls of honour: two dedicated to World War I and the third to World War II, Korean, Malaya and Vietnam Wars.
