The Damansara Utama Methodist Church or DUMC is one of the prominent Methodist church located in the Klang Valley. The church was started in 1980 by 22 young professionals and 3 children who moved from SSMC (Sungei Way- Subang Methodist Church).
In its first service, there were only 80 people in the congregation in a simple setup with basic amnesties. Today, DUMC has grown to become one of the larger churches around. From its shop lot premises in 1988, DUMC moved to Taman Mayang which could accommodate up to 500 people. In 1996, the Chinese Church of DUMC was established and a year later, there were 2 English services held every Sunday.
This will grow to a third service in 1998 where there would be about 1,000 members. A year after that, DUMC moved again and this time to the former Ruby Cinema in SEA PARK. DUMC then expanded again in 2001 where the Bahasa Malaysia ministry was established and in 2007, the Dream Centre became the latest premise for DUMC. Besides the services held on Sundays, DUMC provides the platform for families and the youth in their respective ministries while cell groups are run to provide support services in smaller groups of members.

DUMC or Damansara Utama Methodist Church is one of the prominent churches in Malaysia. As the name implies, the DUMC started out in Damansara Utama, one of the most rapidly growing townships in the country before expanding into larger spaces around Petaling Jaya. Known to be one of the youngest churches around, DUMC has been established for more than 30 years now.
Its history dates back to 1980 when a group of young Christians set up DUMC as a branch off SSMC or Sungei Way-Subang Methodist Church). The group was made up of 22 young professionals and their 3 children from SSMC who has since grown DUMC into a dynamic church that it is today.
Starting out with a small group of members, DUMC’s first session only had about 80 people. This was held its original premises which then came with very basic facilities and a simple set up. DUMC would then grow rapidly in terms of membership and size which would then move to Taman Mayang with a space for more than 500 members at any time. By 1997, DUMC was holding 2 English Language services each Sunday after the Chinese Church of DUMC was set up a year earlier. A year after that, membership at DUMC has grown to more than 1,000 members and a third service session was required.
In 1999, the church had to accommodate more members and DUMC was relocated again. This time, it moved to Sea Park where the church acquired the building formerly used by Ruby Cinema. From then on, DUMC would continue to grow which by 2001 had expanded to provide a Bahasa Malaysia ministry. DUMC would then move to the Dream Centre in 2007 where it has been providing the space and venue for Christians from all walks of life. DUMC is known to be one of the very active churches not only in the state but across the country where it is involved via its ministries in offering all possible support and community services available for the betterment of the people and to improve the way of life among Christians.
