Standing tall over Canberra, St Andrew's first opened in 1934. Architecturally, it is interesting as the building has two distinct parts. Construction of the main part of the church commenced in 1929. However, as a result of the Great Depression, work could not be fully completed. When it was opened in 1934, only the apse, transept, tower and spire were finished. In 1978 building commenced on the nave, which was completed in 1979. St Andrew's remains Canberra's landmark church. Call for service times.
