Description / Background

The St Andrew's Presbyterian Hall is located on the western side of Inverell's St Andrew's Presbyterian Church. The design of the hall is typical of the 1960s. It includes a high gabled roof line at the front of the building, and the hall itself is positioned to the rear of the decorative front facade. The facade features brick columns, rendered surfaces, a decorative rock wall, and large glass windows.

The hall was built as a memorial to those who served in the Second World War. A stone tablet inscribed with this dedication is also set into the front facade. It was laid by the Right Reverend James Goudie, NSW Moderator, on 4 June 1966.

There was an earlier war memorial hall at the church, which was erected to honour the men who served in the First World War. Its foundation stone was laid on 2 October 1920, in front of a large crowd. The ceremony was reported in detail in The Inverell Times on 5 October. The hall included space for the Sunday School and featured a memorial window. The window is now located in the RSL Museum at the Inverell Pioneer Village. It was given to the Inverell RSL sub-Branch when the original hall was demolished to make way for the new building.
