The Bowen Uniting Church building (formerly the St James Presbyterian Church building) was demolished in May 2018. The congregation currently worships in the Hall. Before the old church building was erected in 1935, two wooden Presbyterian church buildings had existed in Bowen. These had to be replaced with a structure more in keeping with the towns development, and so a building of reinforced concrete was erected in 1935 (see separate entry for the 'St James Presbyterian Church - Former' - 4805). More historical information/photographs of the church/congregation are invited. Photographs uploaded 28/11/2018.
