The Houghton Uniting Church is part of the Uniting Church Synod of South Australia. The original Congregational Church congregation initially held its services in the Union Chapel, opposite the current church building.(see separate entry - 5131). Services began in the chapel about 1845 and continued until dissatisfaction with the sharing arrangements led them to erect their own church building, which was opened on 26/12/1875. It became part of the Uniting Church in 1977, along with the Methodist Church next door (see separate entry - 5131). No other details are known. More historical information/photographs of the church/congregation(s) are invited. Photographs uploaded 26/1/2022.
