Welcome to Leigh Memorial Uniting Church
WORSHIP DURING THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC (March 2020)
SUSPENSION OF WORSHIP SERVICES/ GATHERINGS
The Synod (NSW/ACT) of the Uniting Church in Australia issued a landmark recommendation on Wednesday 18 March regarding the cessation of all gatherings, including worship services, due to the spread of COVID-19. The congregations of Parramatta Mission are complying with this recommendation in the interests of public health and safety – and due to our strong investment as a denomination in upholding the “common good.” As a result, Leigh Memorial Church will be closed this Sunday 22 March and all Sundays (and other days) until further notice and all congregation gatherings are now suspended. Many, creative ideas are currently being formulated for alternative approaches to worship, music and bible studies, plus the provision of resources in formats for those without computer access. We will keep everyone posted as these are organised and look forward to journeying with you & maintaining our caring bonds as a congregation throughout these challenging times – Rev. Manas and the Leigh Memorial Leaders: Bruce, Liz, Fiona, Samantha, Moses & Anand.
We are a gathering of men, women and children who gather to worship every Sunday – right here in the heart of Parramatta.
We come from a diversity of cultures.
We seek to:
follow the way of Jesus Christ
in a way which is relevant to life in our world today;
be the body of Christ in this place
in 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, now and in the future that is to come.
We acknowledge the Burramattagul clan of the Darug nation, the traditional custodians of this land from time immemorial.
Our address is 119 Macquarie Street. We are near the new Parramatta Square and neighbours to the new vertical campus for Western Sydney University.

But seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the Lord on its behalf, for in its welfare you will find your welfare. (Jeremiah 29:7).
