Coastal church future uncertain

Coastal church future uncertain

The future of the Uniting Church at Beachport is uncertain on account of a dwindling congregation.

Discussions were recently held involving local and Adelaide-based church officials.

The stone building was erected in Foster Street in the post-war years and is dedicated to St Matthew.

As well as the worship space, there is a kitchen and toilets under the one roof.

Sunday services are held fortnightly and there has also been a monthly service for Anglicans since 2018.

St Nicholas Anglican Church was closed in that year, sold the following year and has since been expanded into a residence.

The only other church at Beachport is St Brigid’s Catholic Church and it is also a post-war structure.

Over the past 30 years or so, the Uniting Church has sold churches at Lucindale, Reedy Creek, Kalangadoo, Glencoe, Nangwarry, Mount Burr, Kongorong and Allendale East.

Other mainstream church denominations including the Catholics, Anglicans and Presbyterians have done likewise in this region.
