The Hillston Uniting Church is part of the Riverina Presbytery and the Synod of NSW & ACT. The present church building was opened in 1964, debt free, by the Rev J Boyal, Moderator of the Murrumbidgee Presbytery. It replaced the first church building erected on the site, which had been opened on 18/10/1891, and was beyond repair. More historical information/photographs of the church/congregation are invited. Photographs uploaded 17/7/2021.
