First Presbyterian Church, Moray Place

First Presbyterian Church, Moray Place

An essay in the Gothic tradition of church architecture, First Church was designed by R. A. Lawson to grace the top of the Bell Hill. For harbour reclamation and general leveling purposes, however, it was necessary to lower the hill some 12 metres before First Church (by then the third) could be constructed. Taking six years to complete, the church with its magnificent spire rising to 54 metres, opened for worship in 1873.
