The church originally opened as the Primitive Methodist Church in 1866. It was the first church built in the Bulimba district and, with the front extensions completed in 1926, has served as a focus for community worship for 145 years...

William Thorpe Riding donated the land on which the Uniting Church now stands as a site for a church. William Thorpe Riding and his wife, who both died in 1877 are buried in the grounds of the church...The original rear part of the church were opened on Good Friday, 30 March 1866. Good Friday was not regarded by the congregation as a day of worship so the opening ceremony was held as a meeting. Mr W payne presided at the meeting which was also attended by Rev Joseph Buckle, who held the first services in the district...(see  https://www.bulimbaunitingchurch.org.au/?page_id=27 for full article).

For the sixtieth anniversary in 1926 a large two storeyed building was erected in front of the original church. More historical information/photographs of the church/congregation are invited. Photographs uploaded 17/10/2016.
