Description :
The Knoxville Jubilee Congregational Church was opened in March 1887, and is said to have been built in the shape of Queen Victoria's crown to mark the 50th year of her reign. The church was designed by the engineer Robert Venables, based on an American design. It was referred to locally as 'The Pepperbox', hence the naming of nearby Pepperbox Court. The church is eight sided with classrooms and an entrance porch around the outer walls. Folding doors open to make a larger space, capable of seating about 150 people. Winifred Kiek, the first woman minister in Australia, was at one time pastor of the church. Today the church functions as an independent church.
