Four years later it became the official Post Office, and has remained open to this day as a Licensed Post Office. The mail service is a general delivery, so you have to front up at the Post Office to collect your mail. The Mansfield-Woods Point mail truck gets in weekdays mid-morning, the mail is then sorted and is ready for collection at 2.00pm. All the daily town news beats loudly on the bush telegraph at mail collection time.

Surrounded by 100 year oaks, sycamores and pines, this beautiful old church was dedicated in 1865. The main structure was built of local handmade bricks with a shingle roof that is now covered with galvanised iron for protection. The porch and vestry were added at a later date. Services are held on the first and third Sunday of the month, and visitors from other denominations are most welcome. Check on the noticeboard outside the hall for special events. The great photographic and aesthetic qualities of the church make it the ideal venue for weddings
ST JOHN THE APOSTLE CATHOLIC CHURCH
Address: Cnr Perkins & Nash Streets, Jamieson VIC 3723
Phone: 03 5775 2005 Fax 03 5775 1677
Replacing the wooden structure of 1864, our charming redbrick church was built in 1899.
Two Jubilee 2000 plaques, with the word Jubilee incorrectly spelt, record the church's history and the dedication of a Memorial tree to all Jamieson Pioneers. Nowadays only about twenty locals and weekenders attend the 11am Sunday Mass. But when Christmas and Easter time come round it is back to the good old days with 140 holidaymakers overcrowding our peaceful, village church.
They enjoy the music from the guitar-playing schoolteacher, Genevieve Bolwell, the mosaic of John the Apostle, our patron, crafted by local Doug Sands, the fabulous flowers from parishioners' gardens, and the familiarity of a small community at prayer. Shrubs and trees crowd the church garden.
After Mass it is not uncommon for Churchgoers to cross the road to the Courthouse Hotel. Church and Pub share a common congregation.
