Arncliffe Uniting Church

Arncliffe Uniting Church
29 Hannam St

The Uniting Church was born on June 22 1977 as a union of three churches: the Congregational Union of Australia, the Methodist Church of Australasia and the Presbyterian Church of Australia. The Uniting Church is the third largest Christian denomination in Australia.

Arncliffe Uniting Church has a unique feature, opened in 1998, the Garden of Hope and Remembrance — a place where missing persons can be remembered and where family and friends of missing persons can lay flowers for their loved ones.
There used to be Congregational, Presbyterian and Baptist Churches in Arncliffe as well. None of those exist any more. This is the last surviving non-conformist protestant churches.
