May you find a place of rest and rejuvenation in our community of faith and may you grow in grace and in the knowledge of the Divine Mystery we dare to call ‘God’. Ancora Impora. We are all still learning and growing into God.

We are a Methodist and Presbyterian Uniting Church.
We love when our brothers and sisters from Vanuatu can join us.
We aim to be Christ centred and community focused.
We are all at different stages on our journey of faith. In our community, multiple points of view are accepted and expected. We are broad minded and we come expecting to have our preconceptions challenged.
