The first Methodist church built in the Brisbane Valley was at Fernvale, in 1872. It was built close to the river and prone to flooding. Subsequently it was relocated to higher land at the corner of Clive Street and the Brisbane Valley Highway. A larger church was built on the this site in 1894. It is now the second oldest building in the district.

When the Fernvale Uniting Church were planning a new church building for its current site, rather than sell or demolsih the old building it was given to the local community. It was relocated across Clive Street and is being restored as an emergecncy response centre.

The new Fernvale-Lowood Uniting Church builing was opened on 26/10/2013. More historical information/photographs of the former and current churches/congregations is invited. Photographs uploaded 18/3/2017.
