Albert Street Methodist Church purchased land in Toowong to build a Wesleyan Church in 1879. On 30/11/1879 a new church was opened.

On 4/11/1885 a group of Presbyterians met and began what was to become the Toowong Presbyterian Church. Construction of a new church began in 1887 in Sherwood Road. The present church building is still in Sherwood Road but across the road from the original site.

These and other local congregations became the Toowong Uniting Church, after union of the Presbyterian, Methodist and Congregational churches on 22/6/1977.

More historical information/photographs of the church/congregation are invited. Photographs uploaded 28/4/2017.
