The foundation stone was laid 9th November 1881 and completed and dedicated on 23rd June 1892. 
The tower was added in 1899/1900 with the whole cost being donated by Robert Maddrell of Bedervale.
During World War II the tower was the official lookout for the air wardens.
 St Andrews is built of granite hewn from around Braidwood.
 Gargoyles can be seen on St Andrews which are a rarity on country churches.
 St Andrews has a pipe organ with 665 pipes built by Mr WG Rendell (1853-1934), installed and commissioned in 1904 and rebuilt in 1975 by LS Waters of Adelaide. The organ still remains the most original sample of Rendell's work in New South Wales.
An organ recital with guest organists is held each year in memory of Ralph Green organist for many years.
 
The church is open daily and visitors are welcome at all times.
