Latest update on Covid-19 Restrictions:
We have had to make the difficult decision to cancel live worship at HSR this Sunday. Our virtual service
will be online as usual. This week’s changes to the Covid-19 restrictions, allowing a 50 person attendee limit, would have required us to reinstate our booking system. Our cleaning protocols would also require us to return to the strict standards of last year. This could not be achieved in the short time available before Sunday.
We hope that these restrictions will be lifted in time for our Cluster Service at St Luke’s on 20th June and that we can all be together to celebrate the UCA Anniversary.
Our Virtual Service will be available on Sunday by clicking here.
High Street Road and St John’s Uniting Churches began worshipping together every Sunday at alternating churches in February 2020. Since Easter last year, our worship continued to be together but virtual, due to Coronavirus restrictions. Many of our committees were 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!
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.
Details of our informal Sunday evening worship and discussion can be found here.
Once Coronavirus restrictions eased, we commenced Covid Safe face to face worship on Sunday 6th December at St John’s. Sunday 13th December was at HSRUC and now services are held at 9:45 am each Sunday at alternate worship centres. Full details of our services together with Covid Safe requirements can be found here.
On the 7th of February 2021 an inauguration service was held at St John’s Uniting Church Mount Waverley and was available for live streaming at that time. For those who missed this service, please follow the link below to view the video online.
Online worship will continue indefinitely. This can be accessed at any time by anyone through the following link:
