This former church property is now privately owned. 

"Soon after houses were built in the estate near Bowman Park and families moved into the area, the Methodist Church established a worshipping community in Bardon.

By February 1945 a Sunday School was meeting in the kiosk in Bowman Park and later in the year the Guide Hut in Cecil Road was the site of the first official Methodist Church service in Bardon.

The first property to be owned by the church was a small cottage in Simpsons Road next to a shop on the corner of Chiswick Road.

When that building and the army hut behind used by the Sunday School became too small, the current church in a prominent position on the corner of Simpsons Road and Leworthy Street was opened in 1958.

Folk who have been associated with the Bardon Methodist Church which later became the Bardon Uniting Church will gather for a celebration of over 60 years of participation in the Bardon Community on Sunday 24th August (2008) at 10.30am...

The final service in the church will be held on the 31 August 2008".(

[Subsequent note from Ethel Foyle (27/4/2020) - The foundation stone was laid on the 4th August 1957. If I remember correctly I was the one representing the comrades to lay it as it was my 21st birthday. My husband and I were the first couple married in the church on the 11th October 1958. Our reception was held in the church hall.]
