Other location information At the inauguration of the Uniting Church in Australia on 22 June 1977, five congregations formed the Wembley-Floreat Park Parish. They were the four Methodist congregations (Wembley, 'Forum' of Floreat, Wembley Downs and West Leederville) plus the Floreat Park Presbyterian Church, 'All Saints'.

On 1 July 1988, the Presbytery of Perth agreed to a re-grouping of the parishes in the area and the new Parish of Floreat Park was inaugurated, with the two congregations of 'All Saints' in Peebles Road and the 'Forum' on the corner of Brookdale Street (now Kirkdale Avenue) and Berkeley Crescent becoming one congregation.

There are therefore two roots - Presbyterian and Methodist - in our origin and, in both cases, the beginnings were in Sunday Schools. After much prayer and deliberation the buildings in Peebles Road and the church in Berkeley Crescent were demolished. The decommissioning service was held on Friday 13 August, 1993. The Peebles Road property was sold and building began on the new church complex in Berkeley Crescent. In May 1995, the All Saints Floreat Uniting Church was officially opened by Moderator, Lillian Hadley on the site of the Forum Uniting Church in Berkeley Crescent Floreat.

The Church sanctuary was rebuilt in the early 1990's to accommodate growing membership
