ST Saviour's Anglican Church may be 103 years old but it remains one of Laidley's hidden gems.

The beautiful old building is a fine example of Gothic architecture and possibly the first church in Australia to be constructed with reinforced cement.

The church celebrated its centenary in 2010 and now it plans to throw its doors open again for visitors during the Laidley Spring Festival with several events planned.

Volunteer Sandy Green said the church would be open daily during the festival from 9am to 3pm.

"We're having a sausage sizzle in the church grounds on Saturday," Sandy said.

"The church is a great place to watch the parade when it passes by around 1pm.

"It is an historical treasure and we welcome people to come around and take a look."

Refreshments will be available in the parish function centre from 9am to 3pm each day, Thursday to Saturday, serving sandwiches, slices and cakes, as well as tea and coffee.

You may be lucky enough to hear live organ music, which will be played intermittently during the weekend.

There will also be craft stalls in the church grounds.

St Saviours volunteers will man (and woman) up for market stalls on the Saturday in the allotment next to Das Neumann Haus from 8am to 1pm.

The church is hosting a family service at 9am on Sunday.

"We always have a family service on the first Sunday of each month," Sandy said.

"The little kids always get something out of it."
