Our Mission

In the past the Church was a place of refuge and retreat from the world, now our churches are places of welcome, gathering and hospitality, places of community. Places and communities in which you can explore Christian spirituality and a relationship with God, as well as find comfort and friendship with people who live by compassion and integrity every day. People who care about communities and social justice issues, locally, nationally and internationally.


As a presbytery we work with our 72 congregations, as well as Uniting Church schools and community agencies in our area, to ensure that they are fully supported in their work and ministries. We have an extraordinary breadth of cultures, sometimes in stand alone congregations and many in a great multicultural mix.In short, the Port Phillip East Presbytery is creating a new future, but staying true to the values and spiritual fulfillment of its past.
