Location Info

Christ Church Milton

The heritage listed Christ Church Milton is one of the earliest sites of Christian gathering in Brisbane. Although not the main centre of Milton Anglican activity today, it remains as a significant part of our life and tradition and is used on selected occasions by our community.

The Anglican history of Brisbane's inner west is closely entwined with the development of the city as a whole. It has its origins in the earliest years of Brisbane’s settlement. Christ Church Milton is thus a heritage listed building, with old world charm. The timber to build it was hauled from the Brisbane Valley after the first church was destroyed in a storm in 1890. The precinct also includes an historic rectory, gardens and remaining graves from the old cemetery.

Nestling adjacent to Suncorp Stadium, this worship space is also a community hub for various community groups. And it continues to act as a contemplative sign of the transcendent and of the immanent presence of the divine in the midst of city's now hectic life.

Please note: Concerts are suitable for patrons of all ages and wheelchair access is available.
