The St Andrew's Uniting Church, Clunes is part of the Presbytery of Western Victoria and the Uniting Church Synod of Victoria & Tasmania. An early Wesleyan Methodist Church building, in Fraser Street, was used until the present site was acquired about 1861. The first service in the present church building was conducted on 12/6/1864. The church is now also associated with the Wesley College Clunes Campus. The Wesleyans Methodists joined with the Primitive Methodists (see separate entry - 3370) in 1899, and later with the Bible Christians. The Methodist Church became part of the Uniting Church in 1977 along with the local Presbyterian Church (see separate entry - 3370). More historical information/photographs of the church/congregation are invited. Photographs uploaded 28/12/2021.
