History

Christian worship has been conducted on this site since it was part of Mr Overton’s farm in 1849. In 1854 the first building was completed and worship commenced in what was then known as the Goodwood Road Wesleyan Methodist Church. With the establishment of the Garden Suburb, this became the Colonel Light Gardens Methodist Church which in turn became the Daw Park Uniting Church with the formation of the Uniting Church.

The Colonel Light Gardens Uniting Church was formed from four Uniting Church congregations: Daw Park, Lower Mitcham, Colonel Light Gardens and Panorama on 25 November 1994. After much consideration, the decision was reached to dispose of three properties and to redevelop the buildings on the Daw Park site.

The new building complex for the Colonel Light Gardens Church was dedicated on 15 February 1998.
