The Byford church foundation stone was laid in 1928.
Our nearest Uniting Church neighbours are Armadale/Kelmscott and Pinjarra. We are one of the 156 congregations of the Uniting Church within Western Australia.
The Footprints Community which is part of the Byford Uniting Church, is a group of volunteers seeking to help others young and old, by giving time in practical service to the community.
The Mundijong Heritage Uniting Church was built in 1905 . The building is located on the main street of Mundijong, 18 Paterson St. (Pictured)
A Mosiac group meet from 9 – 12 am, every Monday of the month. This group runs at a cost of $5. Participants learn mosaic skills while decorating and making items for the church building and garden. It is a very social time, with lots of chatting and laughter along with the craft. The group have decorated splash back panels for the kitchen, plant pots and many other items. New mosiacers are very welcome !
On Saturday mornings, the community gardeners gather to tend to the garden, which has developed into a relaxing community space, with lawned area, garden beds with flowers, herbs and vegetables. There is a BBQ which is accessible by the community. It is a fenced garden, which is open to the public and is often used as a picnic spot by parents of young children, possibly due to it’s proximity to the a playground and the local shops. The community gardeners usually meet to commence gardening around 10 am, around noon it’s down tools to have lunch in the garden, often a shared plate or two. New gardeners are always welcome, or if you prefer – just come by for a look and a chat!
For some time now the Mundijong community have been working hard improving the grounds, and building.
Any assistance with this venture or the gardening is welcome. The community acknowledges the many donations of time and finances; corporate, Shire and individuals to preserve the heritage church building and gardens.
