Together as One Congregation

High Street Road and St John’s Uniting Churches have now become one and our outreach to the community and those in need has been strengthened by our collaboration.
The Church on the Hill and the Church on the Plain are now one Church in Community!

This officially commenced on 1 January 2021, with our service of inauguration held on 7 February 2021. We are overjoyed that this has come to be and give heartfelt thanks to God! In a time when everyone has been social distancing and in lockdown, we have reversed the trend and have become one! Details of our worship times and locations can be found here.

Worshipping Together

At Mount Waverley Uniting Church, we are now having face to face worship every Sunday. Booking attendance at both our worship sites is no longer required. 

COVID-19 Update

Current situation regarding masks, immunisation and QR codes

How wonderful to be able to worship together again and greet each other face to face. The legal requirement to wear face masks indoors no longer applies in Victoria, however, some congregations and some members may still opt to wear masks in indoor settings, as a pastoral and health precaution. 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.

QR Code check-in is no longer required at places of worship. However, Covid-safe plans are still required. Proof of immunisation is no longer legally mandated for places of worship, however 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:

Sunday Evenings

Details of our informal Sunday evening worship and discussion can be found here.

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.
