Cannon Chase), as well as that of all other windows, were sent up from Melbourne. The chancel arch is the full width of the Church, and is to have illuminated text round it.

The plan was furnished gratuitously by Messrs Terry and Oakden, architects, Melbourne.” Gippsland Times, Vic, Friday 12th March 1880, page 4 “…If the exterior of the Church pleased us, we were more than delighted with the interior.
