Killara (Five Ways) Uniting Church

27 May, 2018



Killara Uniting Church -

seeking to be
a loving inclusive Christian community committed to:

thoughtful worship,

service to our community and beyond,

and the encouragement of all people
in their own search for faith and personal growth.

We don't manage this all the time. So we try again.




We are really glad you dropped by. We would love to meet you. Please sign our visitor's book and join us for refreshments in the hall following our worship together. If you would like to make your church home among us, please let us know and we shall arrange a name tag for you.



Children are an important part of our Five Ways community. Children are invited, should they wish, to join other children in Kids church after the young people's address. Please ask door stewards where our kids are meeting today. There is a children's play area at the back of the church should they prefer.


Need hearing assistance?
Good news! A hearing loop graces our Church. Simply use your T-switch.




9.30am  Rob Floyd is leading our worship today. Rob is Associate General Secretary of the National Assembly of our UCA and a member of our Five Ways Congregation.
