St George’s Anglican Church Beenleigh History:

St George’s Anglican Church Beenleigh is part of the Anglican Church of Australia and is almost as old as the city of Beenleigh itself. The City of Beenleigh was first colonised in the 1860’s, with a government survey for the town done in 1866. 

Beenleigh and surrounding suburbs are located near the junction of the Albert and Logan rivers. Beenleigh is located approximately halfway between Brisbane and the Gold Coast and is just off the M1highway.

The land on which the church was built was donated by Michael Tansey after whom Tansey Street was named. The original St George’s Anglican Church was officially opened on the 16th September 1875 at 10 Tansey Street Beenleigh. 

The original building was moved in 1981 to the Beenleigh Historical Village where it was restored and where it currently remains. Our present church building was opened in 1964.

“There are four principles we need to maintain: First, read the Word of God. Second, consume the Word of God until it consumes you. Third believe the Word of God. Fourth, act on the Word.” — Smith Wigglesworth
