Dapto Uniting Church

Service videos are available from our Services Page

Our Story

The history of Dapto Uniting Church dates back to 1841, when Sunday services first convened in a Dapto schoolroom under the guidance of Presbyterian minister Rev John Tait. As the Dapto area underwent urban expansion following the establishment of the railway network in 1887, the church remained a central part of the community.

In 1959, our present red brick building, initially named St Andrew's Presbyterian Church, was officially inaugurated and dedicated. Following the merger of Australian Methodist, Presbyterian, and Congregational Churches in 1977 to form the Uniting Church in Australia, Dapto's congregations opted to continue meeting in the existing Presbyterian building. Subsequently, in 1981, construction commenced to expand the church with new hall facilities, a project born from dedicated prayer and meticulous planning.

Throughout our history, the Dapto Uniting family has been steadfast in our mission to spread the love of Jesus within our local community. We are proud to offer various ministries aimed at serving our community's needs, which you can explore further on our Activities page

Keeping Healthy, Staying Safe and Looking after Each Other

COVIDSafe

It is the little things we do that will make a significant difference and help keep us all COVID and flu safe, like:

  • Keeping up to date with our COVID-19 and flu vaccinations
  • Staying home if we’re feeling unwell
  • Wearing a mask in crowded places
  • Remaining 1.5 m physically distanced when gathering, as much as is practical.
  • Getting together where there’s plenty of fresh air.
  • Using contactless methods for offerings and donations whenever possible.
  • We request that all groups using the church premises clean the areas they use, especially after their activity is over, so that it is clean for the next group who comes in.

As we understand that not everyone will wish to return in person to worship, we will continue to record our services. Each week, the video of the service will be available on this website and our Facebook page by Monday afternoon following the service.
