Together as One Congregation

The Church on the Hill and the Church on the Plain are now one Church in Community!

High Street Road and St John’s Uniting Churches have now officially become the Mount Waverley Uniting Church and our outreach to the community and those in need has been strengthened by our collaboration. We are overjoyed that this has come to be and give heartfelt thanks to God!

Worshipping Together

At Mount Waverley Uniting Church, we continue to worship at both sites alternately every Sunday. We welcome all who come through our doors and look forward to seeing you.

The Uniting Church Anniversary Service on 19 June 2022 at HSR was a wonderful celebration, as all who attended can affirm. The joyous music from the Melbourne Fijian Uniting Church Choir was truly uplifting. We had planned to livestream the entire service, but due to technical issues at the time, we were only able to transmit the latter half of the service.  However, we were still able to share online the wonderful message of Rev Eseta Waqabaca-Meneilly, who spoke to us on ‘The Uniting Church is a Multicultural Church’. We thank her and all from Mount Waverley Uniting Church, St Luke’s Uniting Church and the Melbourne Fijian Uniting Church who joined together to make this a wonderful celebration. The stream has been recorded and is still available to view on the link below.

Here’s the link- to the recorded service: https://youtu.be/PDCwTlY3pkE

COVID-19 Update

Current situation regarding masks and immunisation

How wonderful to be able to worship together and greet each other face to face. The legal requirement to wear face masks indoors no longer applies in Victoria, however, it is recommended to wear masks when indoors in public spaces and when travelling on public transport. We at Mount Waverley Uniting Church ask you to be mindful of the need to protect our vulnerable community members and ask that you continue to wear a mask. Please be mindful of others if you are experiencing any symptoms of a respiratory infection.

Covid-safe plans are still in place and although proof of immunisation is no longer legally mandated for places of worship, we do ask that everyone who attends is double vaccinated and encourage you to have had at least one booster.

Online or Virtual worship recording will continue indefinitely. This can be accessed at any time by anyone through the following link:

Welcome

Welcome to the Mount Waverley Uniting Church.

We are a loving and caring community, living the way of Jesus, participating in God’s action in Australia and around the world and reaching out to assist and care for our local community.

Celebrating 135 plus years of worship and service from the hilltop in Mount Waverley and more than 65 years of worship and service from the plains of the Mount Waverley Village.

We are an inclusive congregation and work ecumenically with neighbouring churches. We welcome people of all cultures, races, spiritual beliefs and sexual orientation. We worship God in mainstream Christian tradition with a rich blend of styles and with an open hearts based on the teachings of Jesus. We are always seeking to learn and grow spiritually, theologically and faithfully.

We are members of the Mount Waverley Uniting Church Cluster, in conjunction with St Luke’s and the Melbourne Fijian Uniting Church.

Bookings for services are no longer required at either of our worship centres – we will let you know if this changes in the future. There are no restrictions on numbers or social distancing rules, however common sense should always prevail. All who attend should be double vaccinated and masks are still required on church premises.
