'Dare to Question and to Act'


Welcome to Woden Valley Uniting Church!

We are a progressive, inclusive Christian community, striving to build a just world for all, through:

  • hospitality
  • worship which nurtures connections with the sacred, each other and the community
  • engagement with local communities, and
  • advocacy.

The full text of our vision and mission statement  can be found here



You are invited and welcomed to participate in the full life of Woden Valley Uniting Church no matter what your age, race, sexual orientation, gender, circumstance or cultural background. There is no dress code or an expectation of holding to certain beliefs. You are welcome if you have not been near a church in a long time or have never been.

On Sundays we normally have

  • a 10 am worship service - in person, with a live Zoom link  - followed by morning tea/coffee
  •  Meditation at 5 pm and Gathering@6 at 6pm - in person or by Zoom.

For more details see the Worship page.

On Friday mornings there is Coffee and Chat. This and other activities are listed on our Groups and activities page; note in particular the discussion/advocacy group Against the Wind, and the monthly Wine, Cheese and a Theologian get-togethers.

Church Library

We have an extensive library - some 400 titles - of books available for loan. As it incorporates the library of the former Centre for Progressive Religious Thought, there is a large number of books by writers offering different perspectives; however that is only part of the holdings. You may browse the catalogues for both St James and South Woden from the following links:

You can come and browse - and borrow - on Friday mornings when Coffee 'n' Chat is on, after morning services, or after attending Gathering@6. For other times, contact office.wvuc@gmail.com to find out if the premises are open and the library can be accessed at the time you wish to drop in.

 Our premises at Curtin are available for hire by community groups and commercial organisations (different rates apply) and are a venue for classes, small group meetings and other activities. We welcome enquiries about hiring. For further information see Venue Hire.


 The Uniting Church in Australia (UCA) Synod of NSW and the ACT is committed to the protection and safety of all people, and especially recognising our duty of care for children and vulnerable adults. We have adopted Synod's Commitment Statement which provides a summary of the Synod’s agreed commitments articulated in its Child Safe Policy.
