Welcome to Leigh Memorial Uniting Church, parramatta
A warm welcome to all!
The Leigh Memorial worship community is a friendly, multicultural, English-speaking gathering of Uniting Church members who worship and serve God in the heart of the Parramatta CBD and share a commitment to working together for the ‘common good.’
As a community, 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.

Leigh Memorial is part of Parramatta Mission and the Parramatta City Uniting Church (which is comprised of Uniting Church worship communities located at sites in Parramatta, Westmead, Northmead and North Parramatta).
We gather for worship and morning tea each Sunday morning from 9.30am – and our worship is also live-streamed via Zoom:
Meeting ID: 519 908 9657
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 Parramatta City Uniting Church online service is also available on a weekly basis via the Northmead Uniting Church Facebook page.
New members and visitors (onsite, online or via Zoom) are always welcome!
Leigh Memorial is adjacent to the incredible Parramatta Square and located at 119 Macquarie Street, Parramatta. Our close neighbours include the Western Sydney University Parramatta Campus and the new Parramatta ‘Phive’ (Library/Community) building on the Square. We are only 5-10 minutes from public transport, shopping and parking sites – and will soon be directly on the new Light Rail line and in close proximity to the Metro.
NB: 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 COVID-safe/ NSW Dept of Health guidelines.
As a worshipping Uniting Church community, 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.
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).
