History 

The Taroona congregation dates from 1902 and has a history of independence.  Long before the formation of the Uniting Church in Australia in 1977, we had unity of Presbyterian, Methodist and Congregational members and adherents.  From 1954, the church was known as Taroona United Church and enjoyed a system of oversight from each of the three denominations, in turn, for 3 year periods.  In 1977, the congregation agreed to enter the Uniting Church and became part of the former Kingborough Parish.

With the change from the Parish structure, we entered a co-operative link with the Kingston and Channel Uniting Churches, with the Pastoral care and ministry shared.

However, from January, 2009, following a decision of Kingston to seek a minister for that congregation only, we operate as a single congregation within the  UCA. 

The Congregation

Our only weekly activity is a service each Sunday at 9.30am., all the regular attendees being retirees.

Although our numbers are small, we are a friendly, supportive group and visitors and new members are always welcomed.

Leadership and Ministry

Our ministers include the Rev. Ian Nicolson, a member of our congregation, and lay helpers.

Music

We have a pianist to lead us in worship. The congregation worships using the Australian Hymn Book, the Songs of Praise and, at times, the Methodist Hymn Book.
