St John the Baptist church was completed in 1988. It has beautiful icons on the walls and ceiling, which were painted by Russian artists in Melbourne and Sydney. The architecture is a recreation of the 14th-century churches of north western Russia. A large icon of the Virgin Mary overlooks the altar, and there are smaller icons in rows depicting Christ, the Saints, Easter and Christmas. The carved wooden iconoclasts separating the altar (heaven) from the main part of the church (earth) are use symbolically in the service.
