The Lancefield Uniting Church is part of the Uniting Church Synod of Victoria & Tasmania. The church building was erected for the Presbyterian Church which began about 1861. In 1968 the Methodist Church joined with the Lancefield Presbyterian Church, well in advance of the formation of the Uniting Church in 1977. No other details are known. More historical information/photographs of the church/congregation are invited. Photographs uploaded 11/8/2019 & 12/2/2023.
