Reviewed 12 February 2021

The present church in Beaconsfield which was opened in 1909 replaced an earlier church built in 1878 when the township was called Brandy Creek. One wonders why you would want to change the name of something named after such a beverage...but yet they did. With a bit of research it's found that 'Brandy' was derived from the colour of the water.

Listed on the Tasmanian Heritage Register this church was founded in 1907 but due to the breakout of WW1, it was not completed until 1924. It has a prominent tower and cupola.

It is described as a Federation Arts and Crafts church- the Federation Arts and Crafts style had its origins in England, where architects and designers were reacting to the impersonal nature of the Industrial Revolution. They wanted to get away from mass production and to rediscover the human touch and the hand made.

As a result it's certainly eye-catching... however, I am not sure it's more than that. Still worth a look if you are in the area.

This church looks modern.

It has a steeple and underneath it ,is the cross.

The church was painted in a light yellow color. The roof is green. It is quite attractive.
