South Australian Register, Adelaide, Thursday 2nd February 1882, page 5.

“PORT ADELAIDE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH.- This church is now completed, and the opening services advertised for Sunday, the 5th instant …”

“… A departure from the contract has been made by adopting stained glass to the windows in the church, the one facing St. Vincent-street being undoubtedly one of the best in the colony, and erected in memory of the late pastor, the Rev. Peter McLaren.…”

“… Messrs. Ferguson & Urie, of Melbourne, supplied the stained glass for the windows…”

The first service in the new Presbyterian Church was held on Sunday the 5th of February 1882[1] by the Rev, James Lyall. The Rev Peter McLaren was the fourth minister of the old church between 1871 and 1878, having been inducted on the 10th October 1871[2]. The new church includes the historic stained glass windows from the old church being prominently placed on the front wall[3].

No photos of the stained glass has been found to date.
