Ann Street Presbyterian Church has some claim to be considered the oldest surviving church building in continuous use in Queensland. Only the Mary McKillop Chapel in the grounds of St Stephen's Cathedral is known to be older.

Wow! Love the sketches of the statues, JJ! They look great. All those gestures captured. Good rendering of the church too.
