St Kilda Uniting Church Community

We are a community shaped by commitment and curiosity. We are more interested in questions than answers. Questions like, what does faith look like in the 21st Century? How do we talk about God in ways that express mystery, inspire wonder, faithfulness and action? How will the primary features of Jesus’s ministry make a difference to our lives and the lives of others? How will we do things like speak truth to power, stand up for human rights, or advocate for the left-behind in an age of increasing inequality?

We are committed to exploring what it means to be part of a Progressive Christian Community. A community that respects the journey of the Church through the ages but values the work of contemporary scholars in the fields of biblical interpretation, theology and history etc. ( see separate listing for what constitutes a progressive church)

And while we are asking those sort of questions we are committed to building a safe place for worship and connection. A community of faithful people who worship on Sundays and do other interesting things during the week. A faith community that cherishes its individuals and their connections to different kinds of communities that enrich our lives.

WHAT IS PROGRESSIVE CHURCH TO US

Respecting the Cultural Heritage

We honour our past but prepare for the future by living in the present. We endeavour to take our particular context seriously (Local, National and International) and engage our faith with it.

We gather on a Sunday on a site where people have gathered since 1877, but more importantly, we acknowledge the Yalukit Willam Clan of the Boon Wurrung. We pay our respects to their Elders, past and present. We acknowledge and uphold their continuing relationship to this Land.
