Team EffortWe always put out the 'red' carpet

St. Ives Uniting Church is a vibrant congregation located at the corner of Mona Vale Road and Douglas Street, St. Ives. First and foremost we are a Christian church endeavouring to worship God as revealed to us by Jesus Christ.

To this end our regular worship service is at 9.30 am each Sunday, and these services can best be described as “informally traditional”. Both traditional and modern music is used and the message often seeks to interpret current events in our society in relation to the Christian Gospel.

Children are particularly welcome and there are activities available in church for children and teenagers each week, as well as worship format that seeks to relate to and involve them.

We have three adult fellowship groups.

Women’s Day Fellowship meets on the 1st Tuesday of the month at 10.00 am in the Wesley Room.

We also have The Friday Night Group which is for working aged men and women and meets twice a month, mostly on Friday evenings.

Men’s Uniting Group - Social (MUGS) meet on the fourth Tuesday of the month (2.30 - 4.30pm) in member's homes.

The “Garage Sales” are held twice a year and are always good fun, raising a surprising amount of money which we can channel into our welfare programs.

St Ives also has an active social program. The regular jazz concerts are now legendary and these have been supplemented by classical concerts (both instrumental and choral) with leading national and international artists. Far from being an “in-house” affair, these events usually attract a broad spectrum from our local community. The Church has many and varied activities to suit most people’s needs. An up-to-date coverage of the main highlights of our programs can be found on this web site.
