Rev Bruce Crowle

Bruce Crowle was ordained in December 2016, and after serving at Narre Warren North Uniting Church, is pleased to be returning on 1 September 2023 to the Glenroy and Pascoe Vale area as Minister for these congregations. Bruce grew up in Oak Park, going to Westbreen Primary School and then Oak Park High. He attended Kent Road Uniting Church, going through the Sunday School with June Bowen and others, as well as attending the Youth Group run by Jim Cramb. Playing cricket for Kent Road. Uniting for a number of years provided lots of fun memories for Bruce.

Bruce’s wife, Mary, also grew up in Pascoe Vale attending Pascoe Vale Primary before meeting Bruce at Oak Park High. They became a couple in 1977 at age 15, got engaged in 1981 and married in 1982. After spending a heap of money showing and breeding Quarterhorses, they had two children – Rebecca (Bec) and Ben.

Bruce is a cook by trade, but began to study theology in 1999, becoming a lay-minister in the Anglican Church before answering the call to ordination in the Uniting Church. He is currently studying Spiritual Companioning (Spiritual Direction) with Wellsprings and Whiteley College. Bruce looks forward to working with the people of Glenroy and Pascoe Vale to see where God’s work will take us together.  


History of Three Churches

Glenroy Uniting Church

Glenroy Presbyterian Church (St Andrews?) began in 1904 in a hired hall in Wheatsheaf Road Glenroy.  Glenroy Methodist began in the 1950"s in a detachable building in Station Road Glenroy. Over the years both churches built more permanent buildings on their sites. In 1977 after union, both congregations combined to form Glenroy Uniting Church. The congregation initiated the formation of the Care Mission
at Broadmeadows (now Lentara) and over the years many of the young adults served on Scripture Union, Beach Missions and Camps. The congregation currently support TEAR Australia, local School Chaplains, Share, Frontier Services and Royal Flying Doctor Services.

Pascoe Vale Kent Road Uniting Church


Methodist services were first held in 1910 in the home of Mr. Tom Giles, cnr. Giles & Pleasant Streets, (diagonally opposite the present Holy Trinity Anglican Church). A church was built further down Pleasant St. in 1911. In1959 the Pleasant St. Methodist Church amalgamated with the Westbreen Methodist Church to form the Kent Rd. Methodist Church, built on land donated by Miss Catherine Breen, and where the Westbreen Bus Depot had been. Kent Road Methodist was part of a large Methodist Circuit which included the Balmoral Avenue Methodist Church in Pascoe Vale South. After union, this Church closed and became part of the ex-Presbyterian St. Andrews Church, now known as Pascoe Vale South Uniting Church. Hence the Kent Road and Pascoe Vale South Uniting Churches are historically linked.

Pascoe Vale South Uniting Church

In 1911 the Presbyterian Church held its first services conducted in the Pascoe Vale area in two school rooms, rented on Sundays, on the corner of Cumberland Road and Gaffney Street.  In 1930 a temporary church building was opened on the corner of Bell Street and Wills Street and was named St Andrew’s
Bell Street West Presbyterian Church.  In 1931 the building was moved around the corner to the present site on the corner of Cumberland Road and Westgate Street and replaced in 1932 with a permanent brick building.  The current church building was opened on Saturday 6 August 1960 and the small hall and kindergarten buildings were added in the 60s and 70s with the large hall/gymnasium added in the late 80s.  In the lead up to formation of the Uniting Church in 1977, the Balmoral Avenue Methodist Church merged with the St Andrew’s Presbyterian Church and together they became the Pascoe Vale South Uniting Church.  In 1996 the Munro Street Uniting Church closed and members transferred to
the Pascoe Vale South Uniting Church.
