This former Eumundi Methodist Church building is now privately owned. The Salvation Army were the first to build a small hall on the site in 1893. A change of ownership and an expanding congregation led to the building of a new Methodist Church, which was opened on 2/12/1911 by the Rev Henry Youngman, President of Conference. It was sold by the Uniting Church in 1995.

The church building was also used by the St Andrew's Presbyterian Congregation until their building was erected and opened in 1953.

More historical information/photographs of the former church/congregation are invited. Photographs uploaded 15/12/2017.
