Dapto Uniting Church

Service videos are available from our Services Page

Our Story

The Dapto Uniting Church traces its roots to 1841 when Sunday services were first held in a Dapto schoolroom under the leadership of Presbyterian minister Rev John Tait. With the establishment of the railway network in 1887, the Dapto area experienced a period of continued urban expansion over the ensuing decades.

Church being built

Our current red brick building, then called St Andrew's Presbyterian Church, was officially opened, and dedicated on 7 February 1959. On 22 June 1977, the Australian Methodist and most Presbyterian and Congregational Churches merged to form the Uniting Church in Australia. In Dapto, the Congregations decided to meet in the existing Presbyterian building. After much prayer and planning, construction work commenced in 1981 to attach new hall facilities to the existing church building.

For many years, our Dapto Uniting family has faithfully sought to share the love of Jesus with our local community, through our various ministries, which you can find about on our Activities page

Our Worship

Service Times:   9:30 am every Sunday.

Our Sunday services are times set aside for worshipping God through culturally relevant and spiritually deep teaching and music. During each service, we try to keep a balance of contemporary and traditional styles of worship. We look forward to meeting you! 

Keeping Healthy, Staying Safe and Looking after Each Other


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.
