The Kaniva Church of Christ is part of the Churches of Christ Victoria & Tasmania. The present church building was erected in 1929 and replaced an earlier building erected in 1891. Early services, from the mid 1880s, where held in private homes and then the Mechanics Institute. In 1999 the church began a shared ministry with the Kaniva Uniting Church. About 2018 the congregation joined the Serviceton Church of Christ in its shared ministry with the Uniting Church there also, which continues (see separate entry - 3420). At the beginning of this shared ministry, services alternated between church buildings, but it is not known if this is still the case. No other details are known. More historical information/photographs of the church/congregation are invited. Photographs upoaded 30/12/2022.
