Comments

(Sydney Morning Herald - 16 April 1902) "OPENING OF A NEW METHODIST CHURCH. The new Methodist Church at Botany was opened on Sunday last". The church building was gutted by a fire in 1984. It was subsequently restored.

The building has been used/owned by a number of churches in recent years. Commencing as Botany Methodist Church it became Botany Uniting Church in 1977. Subsequently it was used by the Botany City Church and now Gracepoint Christian Church (which was previously Randwick Baptist Church).

More historical information/photographs of the current and previous churches/congregations are invited. Photographs uploaded 5/4/2018.
