No. 295 - The Montrose Presbyterian Church

Montrose Presbyterian Church is part of the continuing Presbyterian Church which did not join the Uniting Church. In 1977 the Uniting Church of Australia was formed from the Presbyterian, Methodist and Congregational Churches. Seventy percent of Australian Presbyterian churches voted to join, but the other 30 percent continued as Presbyterian. Since 1977 the Church had moved away from an identity based on heritage and has become more liberal in its theology. There are now fifteen Presbyterian churches in Tasmania.

The Montrose Presbyterian Church is administered by St John's Presbyterian Church, Macquarie Street, Hobart. In 1994 the Glenorchy Gospel Chapel collaborated with St John's Presbyterian Church to become a Presbyterian Church centre in the northern suburbs of Hobart.
