Ann Street Church of Christ is a Christian church in the CBD of Brisbane, Australia that holds public worship services each Sunday morning.[1]

Its website details a range of activities for people of all ages including student outings, community barbecues, women's meetings, music and family ministries.[1]

The church is affiliated with the Churches of Christ in Australia and traces its roots to the Restoration Movement.

The church was formed in 1883.[2]

The historic building at 430 Ann Street, Brisbane, was built in 1881. The sum of 1,100 pounds was the price paid when it was purchased by the Church of Christ in 1898.[3]

The church was active in starting other Brisbane churches. In 1912 it held an outreach to Hawthorne and established a Sunday school that in 1914 became the Hawthorne Church of Christ.[4] The Sunday school secretary of the Ann Street church in the early 1920s was Australian army chaplain John Kenneth Martin.[5]
