Christ Church Mount Vincent has had a pivotal role in the communities of Mulbring-Mount Vincent for the past 175 years.

William Knox Child, following his purchase of Mount Vincent Estate in 1843, was instrumental in the establishment of faithful service in the district. Services were conducted regularly at the estate from 1844.

The first Christ Church was built in 1848, of timber construction with split vertical slabs and shingle roof. This was followed by the second church, built in 1869 and dedicated in 1870.

The foundation stone of the current stone church, Christ Church Mount Vincent, was laid in 1911. The cost of construction was a little over £1000.

In 2018, the people of the Parish of Mount Vincent, Kurri Kurri and Weston, together with the support of the community ensured that the building was retained for the purpose for which it was built.

Services are currently being held regularly each Sunday at 10am.
