Situated in a rural setting on Mundoolun Road, Mundoolun on the outskirts of Logan City, is St John the Evangelist Church.
Built in 1901 from sandstone from the local area, this church was built in the memory of John and Anne Collins and added to the Queensland Heritage Register in 1999.
Whilst the outer facade is sandstone, the inside furnishings are made of red cedar.
With a style described as early English Gothic the church's predominant feature is it's castellated bell tower. Colourful stained glass windows allow the morning sunlight to fall in patterns upon the inside.
Local folklore states that the church and the family cemetery situated behind it are haunted however this remains an urban legend although many claim to have seen or felt the ghosts of past inhabitants.
Although a part of the Jimboomba Anglican parish the church itself is rarely used for services however is a popular location for weddings and baptisms. It is open to the public for quiet reflection or inspection at selected times throughout the week and is well worth a visit to admire the craftsmanship of a bygone era.
