Church Building Restoration

“Generations have cared for this beloved building and now we, too, take up our part in upholding the gift we have inherited.”

Thank you

Thank you for considering supporting the restoration of the Brougham Place Church building. For over 160 years this building has stood proudly as part of Adelaide’s architectural landscape. This building has witnessed celebrations and brought comfort in times of grief. With its beauty, it has offered sanctuary to many and with its open doors, it has offered community to all.

Generations have cared for this beloved building and now we, too, take up our part in upholding the gift we have inherited.

Thank you for considering your part in upholding the past and shaping the future.

Grace and peace,
Jörg, Dave, Karinna, Jo, J.S., Ian and Jenni
on behalf of the Brougham Place Uniting Church Community

A place of Worship, A place of Community

Brougham Place Church opened in 1861. It was built on two different kinds of foundation. After many years, the building is now twisting and moving, resulting in significant cracking. This movement has also led to the need for roof repairs. The nature of the building and its age also means that salt damp repairs are required.

Each of these elements have been costed. We seek to raise $500,000.

This is a vibrant, energized, compassionate community and we believe that this historic building offers grace, welcome, care and compassion, sharing God’s love with all the world. With your help, this building will stand tall.

The Repairs

  1. Cracking
  2. Roof
