Our services are vibrant, inclusive, participatory and progressive. Christian faith is expressed in contemporary language and ideas.
We celebrate diversity...
We follow the cycle of the church year and celebrate special times such as Refugee Sunday and the Season of Creation.
We appreciate art and symbols, music and singing, drawing on classical and contemporary styles. Our services include biblical and contemporary readings, a reflection, singing, prayer and silence.
Pitt Street is a place of welcome for all people regardless of race, sex, creed, age, cultural background, sexual orientation, gender identity or intersex status.
Wherever you are on your faith journey, wherever your background or beliefs, you are welcome.
Children and young people are always welcome and included.
Pitt Street supports religious and civil marriage as a relationship of love and commitment open to all couples.
We value music and singing in our Sunday gatherings, including chants from the Taize community and sung responses.
We appreciate a range of musical styles both classical and contemporary.
Our choir, the Pitt Street Singers, sing once a month and at special services.
We are living the questions...
Pitt Street people are engaging with 21st century theological and ethical questions. We value the insights of progressive Christianity, which are expressed in the content of our Sunday Reflections and in our adult education programs.
We believe that following the Way of Jesus of Nazareth can lead to an awareness and experience of the Sacred and to lives lived in right relation. We understand Jesus Christ as one of the channels through which God is made known to humanity.
PITT STREET is a congregation of the Uniting Church in Australia – the 1977 union of the Congregationalist, Methodist and Presbyterian churches. We are ecumenical, linking to the National and World Council of Churches.
Our historic building in the heart of Sydney seats 800 and is available for booking. Our organ, built in 1910, is a fully restored Hill and Son organ and is often used for concerts. A separate brochure is available regarding the organ.
The PITT STREET building is also used for a number of meetings including the wider Church, 12 Step groups, Buddhist and Interfaith meditation, and the Sydney Alliance.
