The church itself is a sight to behold; the heritage-listed attraction is renowned for its distinct architectural elegance. The structure dates back to some of the first settlements in town and is located atop a hill. Its tall spire can be seen from various points around Mount Gambier. Just behind the church is an old manse; another heritage feature that recently became the Manse Hub – it serves as the home to the church offices.
The Mount Gambier Uniting Church offers several activities: Life Groups, Mainly Music, Adult Fellowship, Creative Connections, and Women’s Fellowship.
