Wooloowin is an inner-north suburb of Brisbane, Australia located approximately 5–6 km north of the city's central business district.[citation needed]

A stump-capping ceremony for Wooloowin Methodist Church was held on Saturday 30 November 1901. The site was on Old Sandgate Road at the junction with Bayview Terrace (now 170 Bonney Avenue).

In 1975 Wooloowin Methodist Church amalgamated with Eagle Junction Congegational Church (at 211 Bonney Avenue, Clayfield) to form the Bonney Avenue Cooperative Parish. Following the amalgamation that created the Uniting Church in Australia in 1977, it was renamed Clayfield Uniting Church and decided to operate exclusively from the site of the Wooloowin Methodist Church.

The foundation stone of the current Clayfield Uniting Church building was laid on Sunday 2 March 1986 by Reverend Leslie Tiplin Vickery and it was opened and dedicated on 5 April 1987 by Reverend Barry Dangerfield.
