St James Church in North Rd, Brighton dates back to 1892 and was destroyed in a suspected arson attack in March 2015. The fire gutted the historical and beautiful church, destroying its roof and everything inside, including mosaics, stained glass windows, the altar, organ, and pews. The flames licked the belltower and smoke billowed across Melbourne.
The building was heritage listed as of state significance in 1984.
During the past five years the arduous task of rebuilding the church continues under the watchful eye of the Heritage Commission.
