The Redeemer Lutheran Church, Coonalpyn is part of the Mallee Lutheran Parish. "A group of Lutheran Settlers moved to the Coonalpyn District in the early 1920s, the first congregation, Bethlehem Lutheran Congregation, being formed on 9 March 1930. A second congregation, Immanuel Lutheran Congregation, was formed on 28 July 1940. In 1952, the two congregations conjointly decided to erect a church and move out of the old town institute into the new Coonalpyn Lutheran Church. The church was finished and dedicated in 1953. When Lutheran Amalgamation occurred in 1966, the United Evangelical Lutheran Church in Australia (UELCA) & Evangelical Lutheran Church of Australia (ELCA) congregations merged to form the Redeemer Lutheran Congregation1. The Coonalpyn Lutheran Church was the first Lutheran Church in Australia to have both UELCA and ELCA congregations worshiping in the same building before amalgamation.  No other details are known. More historical information/photographs of the church/congregation are invited. Photographs uploaded 20/2/2022.
