The Tocumwal Methodist Church – now Uniting Church

21/05/2016

"The first record of a Methodist service is one held in the old Court House by a visiting Minister in May 1880, but it is understood irregular services were held much earlier in the Hillsons first hotel.

In 1889 Mr Hillson donated land behind the Public School for the erection of a Methodist Church, tenders were accepted and the building was completed about September 1890. The Dedication Ceremony was conducted early in October 1890. By 1896 regular weekly services were held, clergy from Numurkah and Deniliquin officiating on alternate Sundays.

During Rev. Oakleys time the church was moved to its present site."

The Methodist Church congregation of Tocumwal became Uniting Church in 1977 in line with other congregations of Australia and the church still stands today in this capacity.
