Services

Sunday Mornings

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.

Sunday Evenings

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

COVID-19

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.

INAUGURATION SERVICE

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:

LENTEN STUDY 2021 – SundayPM

Our Lenten Studies this year are from Uniting World – How to be a Good Global Neighbour. The series asks the question: How can we partner with the global church for justice?

Lenten Study

The first chapter sets the theme: In the Kingdom of God there is no ‘other’…..As Christians, we are called to love our neighbour. And we understand that God places no limitations on who qualifies to be our neighbour. It is a rich and challenging study.

The first study commenced on 21st February and the remaining six studies will be on 7th,14th, and 21st March and 11th and 18th April and 2nd May.

If you would like to participate please ring:
