St Luke's Church of England, Brisbane

St Luke's Church of England, Brisbane is a heritage-listed former church and now restaurant at 10 Charlotte Street, Brisbane City, City of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. It was designed by John Smith Murdoch and built in by John Steward & Co. It is also known as Pancake Manor. It was added to the Queensland Heritage Register on 21 October 1992.HistoryThe site was purchased in 1903 by the Church of England for a new mission church. Prior to this, the mission had rented rooms throughout Brisbane and St Luke's provided its first permanent home. On 3 February 1904 the foundation stone of St Luke's Church was laid by His Excellency, Sir Herbert Chermside, Governor of Queensland.St Luke's served as a temporary cathedral between the demolition of St Johns Pro-Cathedral, 1904 and the opening of St Johns Cathedral in 1910. Architect, John Smith Murdoch, was commissioned to design a church which would utilise fully the limited site area. Murdoch, who was an architect for the Queensland Works Department (1894-1903); Chief Architect for Home Affairs (1919-1922) and Chief Architect of the Commonwealth (1926-30) took leave of absence to design St Luke's and Webber House.St Luke's was purpose built for the Mission headquarters, providing meeting rooms in the basement. John Steward & Co constructed St Luke's which was dedicated on 14 August 1904 by the Administrator, the Venerable Arthur Evan David, Archdeacon of Brisbane. On St Thomas Day, 21 December 1904, St Clair George Alfred Donaldson was enthroned as Bishop of Brisbane in St Luke's. The ceremony was well attended by prominent clergy members and, as the church could only seat 402 people, entry was restricted to ticket holders only.
