This church of stuccoed brick was consecrated in 1845 after its conversion from a schoolhouse that had been built in 1843. The crenellated tower was added in 1863. The building consists of a three-bay nave and chancel and small transepts.

What is of interest is that the first minister of this church was Thomas Reibey- who was also Premier of Tasmania (1876-77). Reibey was also a cleric and rector at Launceston's Holy Trinity Church as well at the church in Carrick. Reibey also worked at this church as a volunteer for 30 years.

Archdeacon Reibey was one of a number of the Anglican clergy in Tasmania who voyaged to the Bass Strait islands in the middle of the 19th century to minister to the spiritual needs of the islanders of Aboriginal descent.

Some points of interest about the church include its bell which was made in England from iron and steel and lined with silver. The church also features an organ, originally housed in the crypt of St Paul's Cathedral, London.

On arriving in the small town of Carrick this caught my eye and I went for a wander around it's grounds... it's like stepping back through time.
