Details

The original modest chapel on this site was replaced by this handsome building in 1801. This was as a result of the popularity of the resident preacher Reverend Joseph Billio. His enthusiasm and inspirational energy had caused the congregation to grow to such an extent that new premises were needed to accommodate them. People would stand outside the church to listen to his sermons. Such was his energy and drive that the phrase ‘to go like Billio’ has moved into our language. A blue plaque on the building commemorates this charismatic Maldon figure.

The church is a fine piece of Georgian architectural fronted by magnificent colonnades. This is continued in the interior which has balcony seating.
