The life of the church congregation began in November 1849, when a group of Christians from various denominations who had been meeting, informally, in a sail loft in the Port formed themselves into the ‘Congregational Church of Port Adelaide’.Plan to visit Port Adelaide Uniting Church during your Port Adelaide vacation using our convenient Port Adelaide vacation planner .
The church met in three different buildings before the present church was built in 1867-8. In 1978 the church became part of the Uniting Church of Australia. The church celebrated its Jubilee in November 1999. Historic tours of the church building and grounds can be arranged by calling the church on 8240 0200 or by emailing us. The building is built from Dry Creek sandstone with very elaborate brick work.
The window and door arches feature alternating red and black bricks and the cornices are constructed of red and blue bricks. These colours are now faded but in its original condition it must have been a very colourful building. A feature of the church is the magnificent flight of steps at the front which sweep up to the entrance porch with its three wide arches.
The interior seats 250 and is of traditional Christian church design with a high ceiling and Gothic styling. There is a large gallery across the back of the church and the original pipe organ at the front which has been restored to its original colours.
Port Adelaide Uniting Church Reviews
規模はそれほど大きくないがゴシックと正式の様式です。住宅地に近くて、小さな町の比較的単純な生活を示します。 more »The scale is so big is Gothic and formal style. In a residential area near the relatively simple life in a small town.
A beautiful old Gothic style church in the heart of the Port. Just as lovely on the inside. Most definitely worth a visit whilst in the City of Churches. more »
Wonderful historical building and warm welcome from people. Worship is creative and inclusive.
