Built 1931. Manly’s Presbyterians held their first services in Sir David Hardie’s residence, before a church was built in 1895. This first church was located in Preston Street. The congregation outgrew that church. In 1931, two local Presbyterian women Mrs. Farmer and Mrs Rix donated a block of land in Oceania Tce for a new church. They opened and contributed to a building fund, which saw this, larger, second church open in 1931.
