Comments

The first Methodist service in Dee Why was held at the home of David and Priscilla Broadbent on 25/11/1917. The first church building was a weather board cottage on land  purchased in Oaks Avenue, which after some alterations was opened on 5/10/1918. The present Dee Why Uniting Church was erected in 1921 and opened by the Rev Henry Howard on 9/4/1921. It is now called the Cecil Gribble Tongan Congregation, in recognition of Cecil Gribble a National and International Methodist leader and missionary to Tonga. More historical information/photographs of the church/congregation are invited. Photographs uploaded 23/8/2020.
