Some of our Church's history ...








Up until August 1992 the people of Quakers Hill Uniting Church worshiped in an old chapel and army huts that stood at the corner of Montrose and Highfield Streets. For many years it was a small, sometimes struggling, group of faithful people maintaining a Christian presence in the area.
 
 
 
 
 


When the development of Quakers Hill began it became clear that God was calling the Church to make a decision for the future. After some people from the Uniting Church in Blacktown moved here to provide support for the Church that would eventually emerge the congregation found itself starting to grow. Soon after this a significant group of people from the Philippines joined the Church and established its multi-cultural nature.

 

 


Following discussions with the wider Church (N.S.W. Synod of Uniting Church) money was made available for the purchase of land and for construction of new buildings. Discussions with Dalmar Child & Family Care (an agency of Wesley Central Mission) resulted in a partnership with them and the establishment of Quakers Hill Family Services. We give thanks for the vision of faithful people who have propelled us into the many possibilities of the future. Their faithfulness has given birth to a new and renewed Church.

 



Our future is full of promise because the Lord of Creation has called us together to be bearers of the Gospel in the name of Christ.





The Fire - On the 14th August 2013, our church, Noah's Ark Preschool and Wesley Family Centre were all gutted by a middle of the night fire which, after investigation, was caused by an electrical fault in the roof.

Our Lord God has blessed us in so many ways since this date. Click here to read "Out of the Ashes"-  three detailed accounts of our journey since that time.

We gratefully re-entered the premises in January 2016. With the insurance organised by the church we were able to create some improvements during the rebuild

We move forward reminded that it is people who really make the true church.
