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.

 Worship Service in the district. A little wooden Church was erected by..."

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.
