Boronia Road Uniting Church

Welcome

We meet each Sunday between 10am and 11:30am

About us

We are a welcoming community based on the need to share our faith and support each other in our faith journey and provide loving practical support particularly in time of need.

Morning tea is served at the conclusion of our Sunday services. This social gathering after the service enables people to ‘catch up’ with what has been happening in the lives of our church community.

We have a prayer chain, a fine music heritage and an excellent banner collection. Our church building, grounds and memorial garden are well-maintained and equipped.

Our building's facilities are used weekly by  community groups. These groups include  support groups as well as sewing and Tai Chi.

During school terms a music programme for pre-school children is run each Friday morning at 9.20am by a trained music therapist.

Ministry & Worship

IMG_0447

We value and utilise the many gifts, skills and sense of humour that our minister and members bring to our community. Together we prepare worship, provide pastoral care and nurture each other in faith. There is a strong sense of belonging.

Pastoral care of the members and acceptance and tolerance of all ages lies at the heart of the life of our Congregation. The Congregation is committed to a continuance of fellowship and encouragement, supporting and nurturing each other in faith, love and discipleship.

Features of our Congregational life include a strong commitment to social justice and care of the wider community. Our ecumenical contacts include joint services with other churches and faith sharing activities. We aim to be vigilant in our contact with people who have special needs and who are often missed by other organisations. Pastoral ministry to retirement villages is an integral part of our outreach.

Community Outreach

Emergency Food Relief. We provide friendship, a listening ear, and food parcels of  non-perishable goods for those who live in the Knox area. Our opening hours are Tuesday and Friday from 10am – 12 noon

A Music Together program is held each Friday during school terms from 9.30am – 10.15am. This is a music therapy program for pre-school children and their parents and caregivers.  It aims to enhance family relationships and communication through music, instrument play, drama, dance and relaxation.  Tea and coffee is served after the session and enables parents/caregivers to get to know, and support, each other.

We meet for Café Coffee from 10am each Wednesday morning at the Mountain Village Coffee Lounge, Shop 16, 163 Boronia Road, Boronia. Come when you can and stay as long as you like.

Recycled Teenagers is an adult group which meets monthly for lunch and fellowship in each other’s company.

A Craft Group meets each Friday from 11.30am at the church and is open to the wider community. Those attending bring their own craft project and lunch. We enjoy each other’s company as we work on projects such as knitting, sewing, cross stitch, embroidery, patchwork, etc.  Anyone is welcome to drop in for a chat and a cuppa.

We have a Little Free Library situated in the foyer of our building and it is available any time the church buildings are open. There is a large collection of fiction, biographies, sci-fi, who-done-its, children’s books and DVD’s. Take a book and either bring it back when you are finished (keep it for as long as you like) or leave another in its place. We aren’t fussed! Just enjoy.
