The Annerley Methodist Church on Ipswich Road, Annerley, was opened in 1890 at a cost of £250 during the ministry of Rev. William Powell. Originally the Church was part of the West End Circuit that extended out to Sunnybank, Sherwood, and Seventeen-Miles Rocks. The site indicates the widespread of Methodism across the Brisbane Southside in the early half of the twenieth century, and contributed a particular lobby with in the local community on issues of prohibtion, social welfare, labour rights, sexual morality, and often contraditory positions on loyalty to empire and pacifism. In 1917 it formed its own Annerley Circuit and a new brick veneer Church building was constructed. There is evidence of a new building around 1922.
