Uniting Church in Australia
264 Pitt Street, Sydney NSW 2000
A progressive faith community of justice-seeking friends in the heart of Sydney.
Weekly Services: Sunday: 10 am
Minister : Revd Dr Margaret Mayman
Our Sunday gathering is vibrant, inclusive, participatory and progressive.
Everyone is welcome.
We gather for worship each Sunday at 10 am, including special services such as Refugee Sunday and Mental Health Week. We express our faith in contemporary language, finding depths in the Christian and other spiritual traditions. We seek to be a spiritual home for many, wherever you are on your faith journey.
PITT STREET is also home to the Interfaith in Sydney community, which holds monthly services drawing on all spiritual traditions and a weekly meditation time.
We celebrate diversity...
PITT STREET is a City Church and we often have visitors – people visiting once or people looking for a spiritual home. We hope that we are open to ask 21st Century questions. This is seen in our adult education programs, and the annual celebration of Evolution Sunday.
Our values include community, lay participation, diversity, social justice and the integrity of the Divine creating.
We seek to be inclusive, open and affirming. We aim to respect and recognise where people are at in their life and faith journeys.
Children and young people are an important part of our community.
PITT STREET is diverse - welcoming people of all ages, racial backgrounds, married, divorced, single and diverse gender identities.
PITT STREET is an inclusive community and supports marriage as a relationship of love and commitment open to all couples.
Music, singing, a part of life...
Music and siging is an important part of our life together, with choirs for special occasions.
Our services include Scripture readings, a witness, singing and prayers. We regularly have services in the Taize tradition.
PITT STREET members have developed a creative and inspiring set of banners over many years which we use throughout the year.
We try to live the questions...
PITT STREET people joined thousands of others in a peace march about the war in Iraq. Individual members and friends are involved in groups concerned about refugees, reconciliation for indigenous Australians, human rights (through Amnesty International), support for Timor Leste, peace and non-violent action, gay and lesbian dignity, and the environment.
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.
