    The life and witness of Parramatta Mission is closely linked to its three Uniting Church in Australia congregations – and its Korean Faith Community.

    The Leigh Memorial and Leigh Fijian congregations, and Korean faith community, worship at 119 Macquarie Street, Parramatta – right in the heart of the CBD, Parramatta Square and the city’s busy transport, cultural and community hub. The congregations share the Macquarie Street site with the Parramatta Mission’s weekday meals and community care service, ‘Meals Plus’.

    The Westmead congregation worships at the corner of Queens and Hawkesbury Roads, Westmead – opposite Westmead Hospital and at the heart of the Westmead medical and education precinct. Westmead Uniting Church shares its site with Parramatta Mission’s ‘175 One Hotels and Apartments’ and the Keramic Café.

    Each congregation worships God and nurtures a life of committed discipleship in Jesus Christ, seeks abiding connections with its local community, and through prayerful and practical service, expresses Parramatta Mission’s core values of Grace, Inclusion, Dignity, Faith and Hope.

    CONGREGATIONS OF PARRAMATTA MISSION: WORSHIP ARRANGEMENTS DURING THE PANDEMIC

    As the coronavirus pandemic continues, the congregations of Parramatta Mission (Leigh Memorial, Leigh Fijian and Westmead), and our Korean Faith Community, are continuing to adhere to the advice and guidance of the NSW Health authorities and that of Synod (NSW/ACT) of the Uniting Church in Australia. In consultation with Parramatta Mission Council, the CCLM (Combined Congregations Leaders Meeting) and our individual congregation leaders teams/worship committees, strategies centred on the health and safety of members and the broader community are sometimes necessitating the temporary suspension of ‘in-person’ worship and other gatherings, while at other times, we are able to worship in-person with a range of protective measures in place.

    With or without physical gathering, online worship options via zoom are available each Sunday of the year – with the relevant meeting IDs available in our weekly newsletters (posted to the website). We look forward to continuing our journey with you during this challenging time – and a continuation of our caring bonds and conjoined actions in the interests of the common good. We also stand firmly with our Parramatta LGA and other local communities – and our fellow Parramatta City Uniting Church congregations and offer unequivocal friendship and support to all. “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.” (Psalm 46: 1).

    Further enquiries are welcome via the Mission office: 9891-2277/ wecare@parramattamission.org.au – or via our respective congregations.

    You can view or download our services, worship and reflections from our Newsletters and Worship page, or visit the individual congregation pages on the website.
