Welcome to Leigh Memorial Uniting Church
A warm welcome is extended to all! The Leigh Memorial congregation is a multicultural, English-speaking congregation that worships in the heart of Parramatta and is part of the Parramatta City Uniting Church (comprised of Uniting Church congregations located at Parramatta, Westmead and Northmead-North Parramatta). The Leigh Memorial congregation gathers for worship on Sunday mornings at 9.30am. Our worship times are also live-streamed via Zoom. Sometimes we have a different time, style or place for worship, and this is always notified in advance through our congregation newsletters – which are posted to the website prior to each weekend. A pre-recorded online Parramatta City Uniting Church service is also available on a weekly basis (connection details in the newsletter). New members and visitors are welcome to join us in-person, via Zoom or online! NB: As we continue to negotiate our way through the long term challenges of the pandemic era, we stand firmly with our congregations and communities, and extend our warmest support and prayers to all. The health and safety of our members, visitors and the broader community is at the foremost of our planning and response, and we continue to operate within the recommended guidelines.

We pay our respect to the Burramattagal people of the Darug nation, the traditional custodians of the lands on which we gather, and acknowledge elders past, present and emerging.

The Leigh Memorial Congregation is part of Parramatta Mission (Uniting Church in Australia), and the Parramatta City Uniting Churches. We are a friendly and inclusive gathering of men, women and children who worship together in the heart of Parramatta each Sunday, and via Zoom. We come from a diversity of cultures and backgrounds and share a commitment to working together for the ‘common good.’
As a congregation, we seek to:
follow the way of Jesus Christ
in a way which is relevant to life in today’s world;
be the body of Christ in this place
in both word and in deed;
put into practice the love of God,
the hospitality of Christ, the freedom of the Holy Spirit;
and, confess the presence of Christ for those who have gathered on this site
in the past, the present – and the future that is to come.
