Our Story

In 1960 there were no churches between Ringwood and Warrandyte.  North Ringwood was an orchard area and the locals asked for a church to be established.  Hence a congregation of the Methodist Church commenced.  The land the Church building now sits on had been a cherry orchard.  In 1977 this congregation became part of the Uniting Church in Australia.  Across the years there had been a number of building developments and extensions.  Then in the early 2000s the congregation was bursting at the seams with people and ideas for ministry and mission, but the available space was squeezed.  The upshot was a total rebuild to serve the growing congregation and expanding ministries.  The new building was opened in October 2006.

It’s always been a active church with high participation from its members in terms of making a difference, both locally and globally.  On this website you’ll catch a glimpse of life and vitality.  Better still, why not come and experience it?
