Cherry Gardens is the oldest former Wesleyan Methodist chapel still used for worship within the Uniting Church. We celebrated our 170th anniversary during March 2019. View two videos that show the interior and exterior including the gravestones – http://youtu.be/mOpJYAK12So and http://youtu.be/noppnCfvT4E
Country weddings, baptisms, and funerals are also celebrated here. A variety of groups use the Church for retreats. The church can seat 100 people if additional seats are in place.
The Cherry Gardens Uniting Church 2018 Christmas Concert was attended by more than 150 adults and children. Go to our Facebook page to see photos and a video of the event.
Our church and meeting room are now air-conditioned! Lovely and warm this spring and will be cool for summer.
Our location is in a peaceful setting and provides the right atmosphere for retreats. Several church and other organisations regularly use the facilities, particularly the meeting room which is air-conditioned and carpeted. There is a good kitchen with a refrigerator and a stove for reheating food. With an abundance of natural light, there also is a good-sized deck outside with lovely rural views. There is a large video screen and a high definition projector that can operate from cable or WiFi. Please contact the secretary for more information. Thanks to the Cherry Gardens Garden Club and dedicated volunteers from our congregation, we have a developing garden with beautiful heritage roses and a growing selection of suitable plantings.
