...Primitive Methodists began holding services in houses in Payne Road in 1870. Two years later Mr. Moses Adsett, a local resident, donated two acres of land for the purpose of establishing a church and local cemetery.

The first church was opened on the 10th December, 1873...The original bible, presented to the church by Mrs. Buckle, is housed in the church today...

In  1902 the Primitive Methodists and the Wesleyans united to form the Methodist Church of Australia...Growth in the church however led to subsequent purchase of a larger site in Waterworks Road...The present church building was opened in 1960 and extended towards Waterworks Road to achieve the current auditorium which was opened in 2001. The pre-school centre was added in the centenary year of 1972...The John Knox Youth Centre was built in 1978, with proceeds from the sale of the Presbyterian site. ( This summary was taken from the Church website - see - https://thegapuca.org.au/about-us/the-gap-uniting-church-history/ for full text).
