Worship is on Sundays at 10am

Surrey Hills Uniting Church (SHUC) is a friendly, vibrant faith community that seeks to care for existing members and welcome new ones. We value the energy that members bring to every part of our life together. Some members appreciate the ease with which they can get deeply involved; others appreciate being able to step back from such involvement. Please take the time to browse our website. We hope you will find information or resources to sustain you in faith, hope and love. We would love to meet you and have the opportunity to include you in the life of our faith community.

Over the past five years, our congregation has been developing a missional partnership with the congregation of St James, Wattle Park, and with Kingwood College, a Uniting Church School in Box Hill South. This partnership is exploring the relocation of the congregations onto the school grounds in order to facilitate deeper missional relationships and shared activities. In late 2017, the two congregations resolved to amalgamate, and this new relationship commenced on 14 January 2018. See below photos of the final service at St James on 7 Jan.
