         Following eight years of fundraising, restoration and maintenance the Friends of Tomerong Union Church ceased to exist in August 2009. With almost all of their objectives completed the Church buildings have been fully restored and returned to the Trustees. Consequently this site is largely historical and provides a record of what was achieved during those years.

         The maintenance of the buildings is still an ongoing concern and assistance, both financial and otherwise, would be welcomed. We encourage the community to use and support these buildings so that they may be preserved for future generations. The buildings have provided a service to the Tomerong community for over a century and we should not let this important physical link to Tomerong’s past disappear due to lack of acknowledgement and use.

         Plant Sales may no longer being held every month, but keep your eyes open for the sign outside the Church for advice of the next sale. Other than donations these fundraisers represented the Church’s primary source of income for the restoration and maintenance of the buildings so, if future stalls appear, please support these initiatives. Remember the land and buildings are not owned by any government or religious organisation, but held in trust for the people of the village and their descendants.

         A big thank you to our major sponsors TOMERONG QUARRY, SHOALHAVEN CITY COUNCIL and Terry and Sandra PARKINSON. Without these supporters the buildings you see would have been lost forever. Also thank you to our other important sponsors All Terrain Fencing, Knudsens Tanks & Roofing, Stramit Industries, Waratah Plumbing Services, Sal's Excavations, Kevin Mitchell Electrical, D&P Timbers, Jervis Bay Signs, Tomerong Post Office & General Store, and North Nowra Taxation Service.
