Experiencing and sharing the transforming love of Jesus Christ

During the twentieth century, Port Macquarie grew from a sleepy little seaside village into a thriving city of many thousands of people. The local Uniting Church Congregation has grown and adapted with these changes and now, in the twenty-first century, occupies the large Uniting Church complex on the corner of Sherwood Road and the Oxley Highway.

The Congregation still also maintains the historic Wesley Chapel building (the old Methodist Church building) in Horton Street, Port Macquarie, as an important link with the past.

Limited Face to face worship has recommenced, with others online using Zoom - see below for more details. The worship is recorded - here is the latest recording - 22 November.

 

Congregation members can interact via Zoom prior to and after the service - contact the office for details.


Coronavirus impacts

Limited physical worship or other gatherings at present - see below.

We still connect in other ways.

Physical worship for a limited number has recommenced, though largely by watching the live Zoom worship.  COVID-Safe requirements include:

  • Pre-registration is required for everyone, every week - refer to Contacts - send a General Enquiry or ring the Office during office hours.  (Preference is given to those unable to participate online through Zoom.  Registration ensures you won't be turned away if all the seats are occupied.)
  • Please do not come to church if you have any cold/flu symptoms. 
  • Attendance will be confirmed on entry.  Please arrive early to allow for this. 
  • Please sanitise your hands upon entry.  Hand sanitiser is available in the entrance to the building. 
  • Please keep in mind the need to keep to the 4sqm rule at all times (unless from the same household). 
  • The wearing of face masks is encouraged. 
  • Congregational singing is not allowed during the service. 
  • Morning tea will not be served at this stage, but you are welcome to stay and chat, preferably outdoors if weather permitting, while keeping physical distances. 
  • Non-physical only contact greetings please. 
  • Online giving is preferred to prevent dealing with cash.  However, a plate will be available at the rear of the auditorium for cash offerings.
