St Michael’s Uniting Church

Architect: Joseph Reed

City of Melbourne | C53

St Michael’s is an inspiring building filled with history and emotion. Completed in 1867, it is built on the site of the first permanent church in Melbourne. The interior design, though ahead of its time, is influenced by a theatrical style reminiscent of Florentine galleries. The exterior, meanwhile, reflects Tuscan style with Romanesque features. The Quiet Place (on the west side) is a non-denominational peaceful escape from the hectic demands of the city. Visitors can experience the magnificence of St Michael’s bicentennial windows, created by renowned Australian artist Klaus Zimmer. This rare expression of visual theology is the largest display of existential-religious stained-glass in the Southern Hemisphere.
