St Andrew's was built in 1998 with a maritime theme and it is shaped like the bow of a ship. The church accommodates about 150 people and has unusually good acoustics because of its shape.

The founding congregation came from the amalgamation of three other local Anglican churches, the Church of the Nativity - Corio, St Silas - North Geelong and St Michael’s - Norlane.

Cherished objects from the original church's are still to be seen in St Andrew’s, including the altar, the lectern, bishop’s chair and all the other sanctuary furniture. Above the altar hangs a three-layered cross that was assembled from the three crosses from the original church’s, each were made of different timber—rock-hard flame maple, walnut and striped maple. That they fitted together so well is symbolic of the perfect joining together of the three distinctive original congregations into one new spiritual whole that St Andrew’s is today.
