The parish is over 100 years old, having held its centenary celebrations in 2006 and for much of that period served what was largely a rural community with Wyong as its centre.
The parish extended from Lisarow in the south to Budgewoi in the north-east and alsoserved the Dooralong and Yarramalong valleys to the west. It serviced, at one stage, eleven centres.
Over the last thirty years the development of the parishes of Wyoming, Gorokan and Toukley and the closure of churches at Wyong Creek, Yarramalong, Dooralong and Tuggerah, has seen this number reduced to one, in the form of St James, Wyong.
The original church was destroyed by fire in 1994.
The new church, hall, kitchen, office complex was opened in 1998.
