1912 trade journal records the minister as "Rev. Robert Metcalfe Thompson, Dresden Parish Church, Red Bank"

The Duke of Sutherland provided land for a church and graveyard bordering on the edge of the Dresden estate at the bottom of Red Bank. The report of the opening of the new church in 1853 is given on the next page. The first church designed by George Gilbert Scott soon proved inadequate for the increasing population and was extended in 1863 and again in 1873.
