The Rosevale Methodist Church opened in 1887 (or 1884) on land gifted by Mr and Mrs Brewer. The church was demolished in October 1960.
The site of the Methodist Church on the corner of C Zahnow road is marked
only by five headstones. The 3/4 acre block of land was donated by Jack
Christensen to the Methodists - a testament to the support shown by
neighbours in the early days as jack was a staunch of the Church of
Christ. When the Methodist congregation dwindled and it was decided to
close the church (it was moved to Harrisville) the Boonah parish decided
to shift the headstones to the site of the block and sell the land. The
graves were not moved - only the headstones.
