We are part of the Uniting Church in Australia.
The first church to be created in and of Australia.
Uniting Church congregations throughout the country are caring communities to which all people can belong. There are around 2,500 congregations with 243,000 members and adherents. A congregation may have hundreds of members or be a tiny community of a dozen people. They can be found deep in the heart of our cities, or in our most isolated and outback towns.
Congregations have many faces. There are older people and young, families and single people, people of one culture or many. At least forty different languages are used in worship in the Uniting Church each week.
There are congregations that have existed for many years and new and very different ones – café style churches, groups that find it better to worship on Wednesdays than Sundays, or who minister across a region rather than a local area.
While our congregations can be vastly different, each aims to embrace all people and unite them with each other and with God. This is expressed in part in our having an open table for Holy Communion to which all baptised people are invited, welcoming children for baptism and being willing to marry those who are divorced.
Our congregations are communities in which people seek to follow Jesus, learn about God, share their faith, care for each other, serve the local community and seek to live faithfully and with real joy. This is the kind of engaging church to which we belong.
The Drouin-Bunyip Parish is located in Gippsland, approximately ninety minutes by road, East of Melbourne in the State of Victoria, Australia. The parish includes churches in the towns of Bunyip, Drouin, Garfield and Longwarry.
Traditional worships services are held each week. Congregations are friendly and welcoming and would be pleased if you could join in worship and also share a fellowship cuppa with us.
Bible Study and Fellowship Groups meet during the week and you would be made welcome at any of these meetings.
