The Jimbour Chapel
The Jimbour Chapel was constructed in 1868.
It is rectangular in plan with the sanctuary under a separate roof at one end and the porch at the other. Inside, the main roof is supported by scissor trusses with a ceiling of local timber. The nave is lit by small lancet windows with original coloured glass. Carved altar rails, font and timber pews enhance the setting.
Religious observance was an important and continuing part of life at Jimbour from the time of its establishment in 1841.The Reverend Benjamin Glennie, pioneering Anglican priest of the Darling Downs, recorded celebrating “a hearty service” at Jimbour in 1851.
In addition to providing the venue for services for various denominations, the Chapel served as the first Jimbour School in 1873 at a time when many families lived and worked on the vast property which then covered some 300,000 acres.
The Chapel was also used as a cinema in the 1940s and 1950s. To accommodate this use the porch roof was raised to include a small film projection room above the door.
