Methodist services began in the district in May 1891, in the Temperance Hall, referred to as the 'Mission Hall'. Eventually the building of a church was undertaken, with the land donated by Mr James Forsyth, Senior. The Willoughby Uniting (Methodist) Church was opened on 28/4/1901. Mr R J Lukey turned the key and the President of Conference, the Rev Dr G Lane preached the dedicatory sermon. In 1985 the South Willoughby congregation joined the Willoughby congregation. More historical information/photographs of the church/congregation are invited. Photographs uploaded 4/3/2021.
