" In the year of our Lord 1886, from the meager beginnings of the Sandy Plain bush shelter, what we now know as Greenleaf Christian Church by means of the servants of whom God gave a vision a bush shelter was erected in the community of Sandy Plain. After a short period of time the sanctuary transformed from a bush shelter to a one room building, which stood on the land where the current sanctuary stands."
