Cherry Gardens is the oldest former Wesleyan Methodist chapel still used for worship within the Uniting Church. We celebrated our 169th anniversary during March 2018. 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.
The Cherry Gardens Uniting Church 2017 Christmas Concert was attended by almost 140 adults and children. Go to our Facebook page to see photos and video of the event. Our 2018 concert is on Tuesday 18 December. More details are on our Facebook page.
Our church is now air-conditioned! Lovely and warm this winter/spring.
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 had a beautiful garden and will do again once the building project is completed.
