Occupying one of the city’s most visible intersections The First Church of Christ, Scientist, Perth is an often over-looked architectural gem. The architectural firm Ochiltree & Hargrave was commissioned to draw up plans for the new building and on the 2nd of February in 1939 the foundation stone was laid in a ceremony attended by a group of church members. By the end of June that year the building was completed – an incredible five-month build. The pipe organ, containing about 2,000 pipes, was installed in 1953 and enlarged several times since then. The Church’s regular organists will play during the opening hours. The First Church of Christ, Scientist, Perth is an iconic destination for the Open House Perth experience.
