North Booval is a suburb of Ipswich in the City of Ipswich, Queensland, Australia.[2] In the 2016 census, North Booval had a population of 3,175 people.[1]

Trinity Ipswich Uniting Church was formed in July 1970 as a cooperative parish of a number of Ipswich churches:[4]

  • Booval Congregational Church, originally located on the corner of Brisbane Road and South Station Road until December 1969, and then at a house on the corner of Sloman Street and South Station Road where it closed in July 1970
  • North Booval Presbyterian Church in Bridge Street
  • North Booval Methodist Church in Tuggerah Street

The cooperative parish operated from a number of its predecessors' premises until a new church building at 114 Jacaranda Street was dedicated on 15 September 1973. During the 1974 floods, the Bridge Street church was used to store contents from flooded homes and as an office for people requiring assistance because of the floods. It was later moved to the Jacaranda Street site as a hall, while the Tuggerah Street church was moved to the Jacaranda Street site as a kindergarten. Following the amalgamation of the Methodist, Presbyterian and Congregational Churches into the Uniting Church in Australia in 1977, the co-operative parish was renamed Trinity Uniting Church.[4]

In August 1980, East Ipswich Uniting Church congregation in Chermside Road joined Trinity Uniting Church. Later[when?] Bundamba Uniting Church and Blackstone Uniting Church also joined Trinity Uniting Church which was then renamed Trinity Ipswich Uniting Church.[4]

In the 2016 census, North Booval had a population of 3,175 people.[1]


North Booval is serviced by Booval railway station, which is located on its southern border.
