We worship together with the Hwaebok Korean community at 9.30am each Sunday. The services are in English, with Korean translations available. Refreshments follow on our Fellowship Terrace.

We celebrate communion on the first Sunday of each month. The services cater for all ages and you are welcome. We are a warm friendly group who are progressive, open-minded and commited to helping people think through the big questions of life: relationships, meaning and hope.

Geoff Dornan

Our minister Rev. Dr Geoff Dornan

Geoff has been a minister of the Uniting Church for some decades, and has worked in a mixture of congregational ministry, administrative roles with the NSW Synod and National Assembly, and academic work.

He spent a decade working in Latin America, in justice related work, during the period of military dictatorships (1980s) and has also worked in development and aid work in Asia (India and the Philippines) and Africa (Zimbabwe, Zambia and South Sudan). He is especially interested in social ethics and the complex and important role Christianity plays in them.

He holds degrees in economics, theology and philosophy from the universities of NSW, Sydney and Boston. He is married to Gilda, and has four sons and two Labradors – Lily and Bella – one of whom, Lily, is in the photo.

Geoff is committed to building a cross-generational and cross-cultural community in St Ives.
