The Australian Church (1884–1957) was founded by Dr. Charles Strong in Melbourne.[1]

Charles Strong was a Presbyterian minister who, previously, had been charged with heresy because of his liberal theology.[1]

The Australian Church had a firm commitment to social justice and was active in the anti-conscription campaigns during World War I.[1]

Australia's second Prime Minister Alfred Deakin was a member of this church.[2]
