We are an ecumenical (open to many Christian traditions) and affirming congregation of the Uniting Church in Australia. The Eucharist is at the heart of our life together.
We offer opportunities for community participation and service via the South Sydney Herald newspaper, the Orchard Gallery for artists, and partnership with local organisations.
We grow flowers, herbs, fruit and vegetables in our Eden Community Garden, a safe place for refreshment, sustainable practice, education and contemplation – a collaborative work.
We are a welcoming and diverse group of people from South Sydney and beyond.
We are open to God at work in the world. We seek to be a community of peace, justice, compassion and faithfulness.
We look for the Holy Spirit in all things and we strive to care for all creation.
With Christ, we dare to be honest in our lives and to explore difficult questions together. We are open to different points of view.
We share love, friendship, hospitality and hope with each other and with our neighbours, regardless of faith or sexuality. We seek to overcome both exclusion and abuse.
