The former Raywood Uniting Church has closed, and the property is now privately owned. The first Wesleyan services in Raywood were held about 1864 in Gunn's Hotel (now Raywood Hotel). It would be about 12 years before the present church building was erected, in 1876. It became part of the Methodist Church in the early 1900s and part of the Uniting Church on 22/6/1977. No other details are known. More historical information/photographs of the church/congregation are invited. Photographs uploaded 24/3/2022.
