Welcome to Murrumbeena
AS WE CONTINUE TO SHARE GOD'S LOVE TO OUR COMMUNITY, ARE YOU ABLE TO SUPPORT US?
WHAT DOES CHURCH CURRENTLY LOOK LIKE
DURING THIS TIME?
10:00am • Every Sunday
For our morning service, we meet in the church for about an hour to listen, sing, hear from the Bible, pray for our world, and share about ways we can make a difference.
Rev Jay usually leads the service, where we have time for the children with Ps Zak, music led by a band, and we are always seeking creative ways of worship. Sometimes we use video clips, drama or puppets.
Worship is open for all, young or old, new or seasoned. We hope that worship feeds and challenges us as we head out to be God's people in the world today.
5:30pm • 1st & 3rd Sunday
of each month
Our evening service is a part of our Youth and Young Adults missional community, The Sonder Collective.
We are a community of people, young and old, from the churches in the area. This service is usually lead by Ps Kelly and is designed for us to intentionally delve into what scripture means for us today. We seek different ways of engaging with our faith, whether it's through a sermon, conversation, videos, singing or over a cup of tea.

Murrumbeena Uniting Church has a beautiful history, including the joining together of four different congregations in the area.
The church building rests on Wurundjeri/Bunurong land, on God's land and God's Spirit dwells here. We acknowledge the traditional custodians of this land under God, since time immemorial. We commit ourselves to working for reconciliation in this land.

Murrumbeena Uniting Church is a congregation of the Uniting Church in Australia (UCA). The UCA was formed in 1977 by the coming together of the Presbyterian, Methodist and Congregational churches. The missional and ecumenical vision of the UCA is beautifully articulated in the Basis of Union, a brief document you can read below.
The theological heritage of the UCA is both reformed and evangelical, with John Wesley's sermons, the Apostles' Creed, and the Westminster Confession amongst its confessional documents.
The UCA is committed to walking as First and Second Peoples, acknowledging Australia's painful history and actively seeking reconciliation for all peoples. The UCA is a uniquely Australian church with more than 2000 congregations, social welfare agencies and iconic ministries like Frontier Services, which serves remote and rural families and communities.
We are a part of the Port Phillip East Presbytery in the Synod of Victora/Tasmania.
