Grantham Heights Uniting Church had its genesis in the life of two Methodist Churches, Seven Hills Methodist Church and Toongabbie Methodist Church. On the 14th June 1969 the Grantham Heights Methodist Church was officially opened. It is located on the corner of MacKenzie Boulevard and Nipigon Road in the Grantham Estate, Seven Hills.
When the Methodist, Presbyterian and Congregational Churches joined to form the Uniting Church in Australia in 1977, the Grantham Heights Methodist Church became the Grantham Heights Uniting Church.
On the 13th June 1982, the church building was destroyed by fire. The church was rebuilt and the current church facilities were opened on the 10th December 1983.

“My name is Shin Goo Lee. I’m the minister of Grantham Heights Uniting Church. I was born in South Korea and came to Australia in 2002. I’m married with two sons, Aiden and Jamie. I have a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Theology. I will continue my study in theology and pastoral caring for deeper understanding of God and others.
In my own time, I like listening to music, reading books and playing sports. I’m also interested in other cultures and enjoy the experience of learning diverse cultures and their history.I appreciate the differences which God has given us and in sharing our lives together in my faith journey.”

Like all groups of people, the Grantham Heights congregation has gone through significant changes over the years of its existence. Only a few of the original members are still part of the congregation. Some have moved geographically, some older members have passed on, new people have joined. Worship services look different today than they did 30 odd years ago.
But in the midst of the change there are 3 things that have stayed the same:
A strong commitment to the people of the local community
A belief that the Christian faith offers meaning and hope in a world that is less than it should be
A striving to be relevant in a changing world
If you are interested in being part of the ongoing history of a community of faith committed to helping a hurting world this may just be the place for you.
Mission statement – ‘We are called to be evidence of God’s love, active in our community.’
Presently, Grantham Heights Uniting Church uses the money collected through offering donations from the congregation to support fundraising mission groups.
Other areas of mission include outreach activities and allowing different groups to use the church’s facilities. Information about these groups can be found over on our church activities page.
