CoroUniting has a long and fascinating history as one of the first Christian churches in the area.

In 1850, a group of Christians came together at Coromandel Valley to worship God. Their roots were mainly Wesleyan (which was later referred to as Methodist), Baptist and Congregationalist with family links back to the UK.

Max Winter has written a history of events from 1850 to 2000 of the Wesleyan/Methodist/Uniting Church at Coromandel Valley.

Ray Elford describes in his paper, The Power of the Gospel, the main changes to the body life of Coromandel Valley Methodist/Uniting Church between 1965 and 2000 including the influence of the Youth Group and the charismatic renewal movement.
