The Tickera Historic Church first commenced services as a Methodist Church in 1885 in the provisional Tickera School. The corner stones were donated by the Wallaroo Mining Company through Captain Hancock. Residents guaranteed to raise and cart the necessary stone and sand, and burn the lime needed to complete the building. Busy bees were held involving as many as 28 men and the new church grew on these premises at Lot 44 in the town centre. Opening services of the Tickera Bible Christian Church were held on 22-23 October 1889 to an overflowing congregation.
In 1954, the building was purchased by the Tickera Seventh Day Adventists. They renovated and used it for about 10 years. It is now a private residence.
