Last month, Millmerran Uniting Church celebrated 25 years since opening their church building back in 1990.

The Millmerran Parish was formed in July 1983 and worshipped in St John’s Lutheran Church in Millmerran for 8 years before the Masonic Lodge building was bought and moved from Cecil Plains.

“This was completely renovated incorporating rooms for the Blue Nursing Service – now Blue Care,” said Cec Gibson, a member of the congregation. 

“There was a tremendous amount of voluntary labour with the moving, cutting stumps and relocating the new building to Millmerran.”

As part of the 25-year celebrations, the  congregation joined for a dinner on March 14th, followed by a Thanksgiving Service on Sunday 15th which was conducted by Rev. Bruce Raymond, Minister of the Central Downs Parish. 

Along with these events, Cec compiled a booklet containing the early history of the Millmerran Parish, Blue Nursing Service and the Girls Brigade.

“It will be an occasion that will be talked about with pleasure and fond memories for many years to come,” said Cec. 

“It was wonderful to see so many friends past and present Church families attending this very special weekend.”
