Revamped Indooroopilly church opens doors

Rev Josie Nottle and Rev Henry Swinden ready to welcome

SATURDAY 4 December was the opening of the redevelopment of the Indooroopilly Uniting Church.

The conclusion of the redevelopment brings to fruition ten years of planning and twelve months of construction.

Opened by the Moderator Rev Bruce Johnson the contemporary glass-fronted structure makes a dramatic connection between the earlier Methodist Church of 1917 and the church built in 1976 for the combined Presbyterian- Methodist congregation just prior to Union.

This history is captured in a new publication Dreams and Visions.

Opposite Indooroopilly Shopping Centre, one of Queensland’s largest shopping centres, the redevelopment was finished just in time for the busy Christmas season and the Church’s annual “Walk through Bethlehem” display running from 21 to 23 December.

The display gives a space of rest for hectic Christmas shoppers to walk through a tableau of live actors displaying the first
Christmas scene.

Live animals, a real baby, a cranky innkeeper, haughty soldiers and happy peasants and a variety of shopkeepers will be
there alongside Mary, Joseph, the shepherds and wise men.
