Port Fairy Uniting Church

ADDRESS:  44 James St, Port Fairy 3284
PHONE:  (03) 5568 1046
EMAIL: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Services are held at 10am on the 1st, 3rd and 5th Sundays, a Communion Service at 11am on the 2nd Sunday and a Family Service at 11am on the 4th Sundays (this service is designed particularly with children in mind).

The present Port Fairy Uniting Church was built in 1855 and was a Wesleyan Methodist Church.  Prior to this, meetings were held in a private house in Rosebrook, before the first building was erected on the bank of the river Moyne at Rosebrook.


In 1847 land was granted to the Methodists, and a wooden building was built on the present site. It was later used as a school.  In 1847 the present bluestone building was constructed, building began in August, and the first service was conducted in December of that year.


Significant decorations feature two carvings by Walter McGill. The first is over the front doorway, and the other, a sculpture of John Wesley’s head is above the porch.  The porch was added in 1933, and this sculpture is now only visible from the street.


In 1870 a second bluestone building on the property was opened as a Sabbath and Common School. After 1872 it was only used as a Sunday School, and recreation hall.
The lovely old Manse next to the church at 46 James St. was in need of extensive renovation, and was, regretfully, sold in 1994. It is now beautifully renovated and is privately owned.   A more detailed history is available at the church.
