South Sydney Uniting Church is ecumenical (e.g. supporting the National and World Council of Churches) and inclusive, affirming the gifts of people of all ages, cultural backgrounds, sexual orientations and identities. We seek peace with justice, and the integrity of creation. We celebrate a service of Word and Sacrament (Eucharist) each Sunday at 10am.
"We acknowledge the traditional owners of this land: the Gadigal people of the Eora nation."
