History and Architecture:

The first services were held in the local courthouse.  In 1843 the Rev Moses Parker arrived and made Richmond the centre of his circuit.  
 
A chapel was located in Torrens Street on a parcel of land donated by John Kestall Buscombe, a successful local businessman.  The chapel was opened on Wednesday 3 December 1845 and a collection was made after the service in aid of liquidating the debt on the building.  

The current Congregational Church was opened in January 1875. The original chapel was damaged in a storm in 1876 and was removed.
