The Uniting Church is a union of three churches; the Congregational Union of Australia, the Methodist Church of Australasia, and the Presbyterian Church of Australia. These churches amalgamated in 1977 to form the Uniting Church in Australia.
The Uniting Church is an Australian Christian movement. It shares with Australian people in the search for meaning, purpose and community in life. It is committed to justice and reconciliation between people. Through worship, sharing the story of Jesus, and service in the community, we witness to the belief that life is most fully found in God.
Gladstone Park Uniting Church has its roots back in the 19th Century through Westmeadows Presbyterian Church (1853) and Tullamarine Methodist Church (1870). In 1976 the Westmeadows and Tullamarine churches started a new church in Gladstone Park which became Gladstone Park Uniting Church in 1977. All three churches came into the Uniting Church when it was formed in 1977, and in 1983 they merged to become what is now Gladstone Park Uniting Church. The present worship centre in Gladstone Park was opened in 1990.

To help preserve the heritage of the congregation, the stained glass windows from Tullamarine Methodist Church and the bell from Westmeadows Presbyterian Church are incorporated into the Gladstone Park Uniting Church worship centre
