History

The United Presbyterian Church of Gilroy was first formally established in 1860, only 11 years after the Gold Rush of 1849 and just six months before the start of the Civil War. Thirteen charter members gathered together at the first church building in Old Gilroy on the Ferguson Ranch. As the establishment of the railroad caused the population of New Gilroy to grow rapidly (to 1,700), the congregation chose to build a church in 1869 on the corner of Church and Fifth Streets. In 1914, electric lights were installed and the church continued to be a beacon of light in a dark world.

The Fifth St. church building (which is currently used by the Salvation Army) is the second oldest Presbyterian church building in California and served our congregation well until the early 1980’s. After sacrifice, fundraising, loans and an anonymous gift, we were able to purchase 12 acres of land and begin construction of our current church campus located at 6000 Miller Avenue. In 1989, after many months of holding church at Gavilan Jr. College, we were able to celebrate the dedication of our new church. Over thirty years later, Gilroy Presbyterian Church continues to worship God, build disciples and serve the community of Gilroy.

For over 155 years our church has stood the test of time and been blessed beyond measure. We believe that God has our future securely in His hands and we look forward to the next 155 years! Come and be a part of God's plan with us!
