We are two of the Uniting Churches in the Bass Coast area. Along with St John's at Cowes and the Prom Country Patrol in South Gippsland, we make up the Shearwater Ministry in the Gippsland Presbytery. We pay our respects to the Bunurong/Boon Wurrung Peoples and their elders, past, present and emerging.
We are an inclusive and welcoming place, seeking new ways to support, love and serve our communities. Our minister is Rev Deacon Wendy Elson and she is passionate about attending to those in marginal spaces and serving outside our church walls.
We are looking to find new ways to share the love of God in our area in a way that is not preachy or judgmental. We believe that we are all seekers together and that being real is an important part of being the people of faith. We are seeking to follow more closely, the radically inclusive good news of Jesus' teaching, with its message of bottom up, topsy-turvy values. We are listening for the breath of the Spirit in leading us into newness and restoration, learning to let go of things which hold us back and to hold fast the things which lead us forward.
Each of our congregations have their own identity and uniqueness. Check in to each place to see a bit more about us.
