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.

Details of our worship times and locations can be found here.

Virtual Worship in January

As our Virtual Worship Team is taking a well-deserved break during January 2023, we offer Christmas and Epiphany recordings from January 2022.

COVID-19 Update

Current situation

Church Council met on 22 November 2022 and, after review, has revised its COVID-Safe policies.

We strongly recommend wearing a face mask at all times during church services, and particularly while singing, because we cannot effectively socially distance.

The responsibility for preventing the spread of COVID-19 now rests mainly with organisations and individuals. Thank you everyone for continuing to consider others as well as yourselves in helping to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Please click on the link below to download the latest update to the Mount Waverley Uniting Church COVID-Safe Policy. This document describes Mount Waverley Uniting Church’s current requirements for conducting church services and church group activities. It includes our expectations for group leaders and participants. The COVID-19 pandemic is ongoing. We thank everyone for continuing to care for each other and for helping to keep each other safe.

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

Sunday Evenings

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 highly recommended when attending church premises.
