THE CHURCH ON THE HILL AND THE CHURCH ON THE PLAIN
HSRUC 482 High Street Road, Mount Waverley
St John’s Uniting Church 37-43 Virginia Street, Mount Waverley
High Street Road and St John’s Uniting Churches together, have voted, almost unanimously, to unite as one congregation. This officially begins on 1 January 2021 with our service of inauguration 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!
We began worshipping together every Sunday at alternating churches in February 2020. Since Easter last year, our worship has continued to be together but virtual. Many of our committees are working as 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!
Details of our informal Sunday evening worship and discussion can be found here.
Due to the risks of Coronavirus to our congregation and the wider community and in compliance with Government recommendations, there have been no worship services or face to face meetings at either of our locations for some months. Now that restrictions have eased, we commenced Covid Safe face to face worship on Sunday 6th December at St John’s at 9.45am. Sunday 13th December was at HSRUC and now services are held each Sunday at alternate worship centres. Full details of our services together with Covid Safe requirements can be found here.
Online worship will continue indefinitely. This can be accessed at any time by anyone through the following link:
