    ABOUT US…WE ARE A ‘CHURCH’ 

    • Leigh Memorial is a diverse congregation, with a happy mix of people of different ages, cultures, and educational and life experiences;
    • We are a congregation of the Uniting Church in Australia. For more information on the Uniting Church, visit http://uca.org.au/;
    • Our congregation is named in honour of the first minister of our church and Parramatta Mission: Rev Samuel Leigh (1785–1852), who was also the first Wesleyan Methodist missionary to New South Wales in 1815;
    • Our congregation is part of the wider ‘Church’ of Jesus Christ, ie. the word ‘Church’ comes from a Greek word meaning “belonging to the Lord”;
    • As a congregation, we have a ‘past’ extending back over 200 years, a ‘present’ that we are living and enjoying to the best of our ability – and a ‘future’ that we are exploring and building with the prayerful and practical support of our members, our fellow congregations and our local community;
    • As a congregation, we support the good work of Parramatta Mission’s ‘Meals Plus’ – a meals and assistance program, which operates on our site.

    We are disciples of Jesus Christ – visitors and new members welcome!

    • All of us are called to continue the ministry of Jesus Christ for the sake of sharing the good news (the ‘gospel’) that Jesus proclaimed and lived out. As such, we are a people on a journey – a ‘pilgrim’ people on our way;
    • Some of us have grown up in the church, and some of us haven’t. Those who haven’t are exploring what it means to be a follower of Christ Jesus;
    • We welcome everyone to our worship times (in-person and online) regardless of where they are up to in their spiritual journey – and everyone is invited to join our relaxed conversation and morning tea times following onsite worship each Sunday. Everyone who worships with us is welcome to share communion;
    • One of the core practices of the early Christian Church was hospitality – or the practice of welcoming strangers who were “gifts” to the hosting community – so new people are always very warmly welcomed into our congregational life;
    • For further information about joining us as a visitor, or as a prospective new member, please contact us via the Mission office, 9891-2277, or via our congregation email:  LeighMemorialUniting@gmail.com
