The Annerley Churches of Christ began as a Bible school on Ipswich Road, Annerley, in February 1913. Formed as a church congregation in February 1914, the community met at the Walker Memorial Hall (see entry). In 1919 the land on Annerley road was purchase and the Mount Vernor church building was transferred to the site. The Churches of Christ tradition began much earlier, in the early nineteenth century, in the ethos of ‘Christian primitivism’ (also known as ‘Restorationism’; with breakaway groups known as ‘Primative Methodists’ and ‘Primative Baptists’). Although a diverse collection of very autonomous churches, the basic concept of the broad movement has been reviving the original and basic form of the ancient Christian faith, as revealed in the New Testament.
