About us

We are a vibrant inter-generational church family who are committed to following Jesus and doing life together.

Our strength is our sense of community. We are all about being a community of faith where people are loved and supported as they enjoy life to the full with one another (see John 10:10 for more info). Our mission is to serve both our local community and our world by focussing on the older generation, youth and young families.

There are many different groups and activities taking place via which we encourage and serve others, and there is a worship service and special interest group to suit just about everybody.

Our church continues to enjoy a strong association with Mayflower Village, our local Uniting aged-care facility. Many of our members either live at Mayflower or volunteer their time there in a wide range of capacities.

We also operate Chittick Lodge conference centre here in Gerringong as part of our service to the community. You can visit the Chittick Lodge website at www.chitticklodge.org.au

You can find out more about the Gerringong-Gerroa community at www.gerringong-gerroa.com.

We exist to serve our community, our nation, and our world in the name of Christ. In short, we love because he first loved us (see 1 John 4:19). As such, we actively support the following local, regional, national and international ministries via prayer, financial and practical assistance:

  • Uniting Mayflower Village
  • KBECET (Kiama Board for the Employment of Christian Education Teachers)
  • Wollongong Mission
  • Welcome to Australia
  • Frontier Services
  • The Gideons International
  • Tabbitha Foundation (Cambodia)
  • Light home (Andhra Pradesh, India)
  • Samaritan’s Purse (Operation Christmas Child)
  • Siyandlulisa (WEC Johannesburg)

We are part of the extended Uniting Church family, one of Australia’s largest Christian denominations. This means we can receive (and offer) support and accountability from the broader church when needed. The Uniting Church sits within the Methodist, Presbyterian and Congregational Christian traditions. We are part of the NSW Synod and the Illawarra Presbytery.

We would love to see you at any one of our gatherings or functions that take place at our Fern St centre and around town.

See below a quick guide to who we are and what we believe…
