A snapshot of some of our church buildings’ history!
Scots Uniting Church was originally known as the Scots Presbyterian Church. The church is located on York Street, the main street through the centre of Albany.
Built to a Victorian Academic Gothic style, it is mostly constructed of finely crafted local granite and topped with a corrugated iron roof.
The Foundation Stone was laid by P. H. Nicholson Esq. on 25th November 1891, with the building completed and opened in March 1892. The total cost of the building was £1416.
Wesley Uniting Church is located on Duke Street overlooking Princess Royal Harbour in Albany, in the Great Southern region of Western Australia.
Initially known as the Wesley Methodist Church it was built in a late Victorian style in 1890 at a cost of £2,695.
A stone on the church was dedicated by the Sunday School Children on 29th October, 1890.
The former Denmark Methodist Church building is now privately owned.
This church building was erected around 1925 and used until 1982, when the new Uniting Church building was opened.
