The Byaduk Uniting Church is now closed, and the property was sold in February 2016. It was erected for the Wesleyan Methodist Church, the first church built in Byaduk, and was opened in 1864. No other details are known.

The site next to the church building has also been sold. It was the site of the former Byaduk Presbyterian Church and Sunday School, destroyed in the 1977 bushfires. Remnants of the bluestone foundations and the stone fence still remain.

More historical information/photographs of the former churches/congregations are invited. Photographs uploaded 08/03/2016 & 17/3/2023.
