St George's Anglican Church, built in 1875 in Tansey Street Beenleigh, now resides in the Beenleigh Historical Village. The congregation built a modern church in 1964 and there were moves to either demolish or relocate the early building. It was listed both by the National Trust and by the Australian Heritage Commission in 1977. Its relocation by the Albert Shire Council in 1981 ensured its retention, although on a different site. In November 1874, the local publican Michael Tansey, donated land for the church, on the corner of Kent and Tansey Streets. Brisbane architect FDG Stanley designed the church which was built by Messrs Wohlsen and Ehlers for 250 pounds. It opened in September 1875. The timber building had external studs with walls of vertically placed pine boards, with a roof of ironbark shingles. The floor was yellowwood. The communion table and lecterns were of cedar and the seats of Noosa pine (kauri). The church was to serve the Beenleigh community for almost 90 years. Even today in its new location, the church may be used for weddings.
