Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We very much enjoyed the service and taking in the majesty of this church. It seems they are very engaged in the community and have a lot of good work going on. Well done for supporting others more needy! YMMV

One of only two churches of any denomination that was open when I visited. It dates to 1905 and served as St Andrews Presbyterian Church until 1977 when Presbyterian, Methodist and Congregational Churches joined to form the Uniting Church. The building style is Neo-Romanesque and considered one of the finest examples in the Southern Hemisphere. Like many of the Presbyterian churches that we have sighted on our travels, the exterior of the building looks rather austere with minimal ornamentation as normally befits a church building. The church member that I met inside was very happy to guide me through the church and explain the significance of the stained glass windows. The original windows were glazed n pastel coloured leadlights and some remain whereas others have been reglazed in stained glass. The lofty ceiling is impressive but for me, the main interior feature is the organ in the tiered chancel.

This is a rather small an underwhelming church in central Brisbane.
While its exteriors are rather lovely, the interiors are everything but impressive.
You can easily skip it.

This Uniting Church built in 1904 and is heritage-listed and located at 131 Creek Street (corner with Ann Street)

I'm not so much a fan of the bland exterior achitecture but the interior is quite beautiful. Spectacular stained glass windows and beautiful curved ceilings are lovely features of this old church.

I was out on a church tour and visited this church, it has some pretty brick work and stained glass windows that can be better viewed from inside the church. Nice place to stop and rest and think about life!

Uniting Saint Andrews Church is a beautiful historic renovated building with lovely stained glass windows. It is atmospheric, easily accessible as it's within the city of Brisbane, and well worth a visit. If you can visit when concerts are being held, it's even better. I pop in once or twice a year when visiting Brisbane as it's a peaceful beautiful space.

This is my 50th review and I almost walked by it. I just happened to stop long enough to notice the building beside me was a church. It's stained glass windows had wire mesh across them to protect them from the drunken yahoo's the stumble around after a night at the nightclubs or pubs drinking...at least I am presume this is the reason. At least I would have the mesh there for that. I walked in and found it was just having itself spring cleaned, but I was made most welcome to walk around...even got a laminated card with historical data and map to highlight the various areas of interest.....the first thing that will get you is the magnificent set of pipes that stand tall from the organ, nice.
And from the inside, the stained glass windows came into their own. Like a Christmas card...but only better. The wooden structure is something to behold and the brickwork, is that, pure workmanship. They knew how to build churches when they built this grand old lady. It may be small on the outside and you do have to stop to notice it, but it is worth doing so and I'm pleased to have this as my 50th review. A really nice piece of history in the heart of Brisbane.

This Church is significant to our family as three generations before me have all been married there, so I wanted to go inside and have a good look around. And once you do you will see why it is so popular. The high ceilings, with the light shining through, make for a beautiful sight.

Another city church used for Lunchtime Concerts when the City Hall venue was out of action. Traditional type of church- pipe organ, stained glass windows, traditional pews and furniture.

The Uniting St Andrews Church in Brisbane is actually quite big, but it is dwarfed by the cities skyscrapers that loom above it. A nice red brick building, it is open for visitors throughout the week, from 11-2. I missed a look inside this church when I last visited, so this time I made sure I was there during visiting hours.
Inside, the church is majestic and dark, with a high ceiling of dark wood and fantastic, moody light. It was nice to wander around the church and take in the highlights – the memorial chapel remembering soldiers during the world war, magnificent flags and amazing stain-glass windows.
The Uniting St Andrews Church is a grand building, with a fantastic interior that is not to be missed. Thank for the volunteers that allow them to open up the church for visitors. A nice attraction in Brisbane.
