The Church is one of the oldest remaining churches on the south-side. Constructed just 7 years after Queensland’s separation from N.S.W., this was the first church, of any denomination, to be built in the Bulimba district. Due to its increasing congregation and with the 1920’s building boom the Bulimba Primitive Methodist Church was enalrged in 1926. With the amalgamation of the Methodist, Presbyterian and Congregation faiths in 1977, this building became one of the new Uniting Church places of worship.
