Welcome

Update for Sunday 13th June: We are permitted to have up to 50 persons attending at the church, so make sure you wear a mask if you choose to come. Otherwise, catch Matt and the crew via our usual Zoom ‘meeting’. The service will be accessible via Zoom, not Facebook as we have done in past lockdowns. You do not need to have downloaded Zoom for the link below to work. Sunday services are live streamed at 10am each week.   To view it through zoom use the following link:

Church Office and Food is Free during lockdown

The Church Office and building are closed due to the COVID lockdown. Only volunteers cleaning and filling the Food is Free Cupboard will be able to access the church building at this time. If you need to contact Matt or Sue please email us and we will respond asap. Food is Free is being regularly cleaned and sanitised especially due to the current crisis. If you are able to assist in any way please let us know. If you have any fresh fruit and vegetables or non-perishable items to donate please bring them to the cupboards or fridges on the deck of the church. There is a lot of need at the present time and anything would be greatly appreciated.

Wominjeka. Welcome. We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet, the Wurrundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. We pay our respect to their Elders past, present and emerging. We also acknowledge our gratitude that we share this land, our sorrow for some of the costs of that sharing and our collective hope and belief that we can move to a place of equity, justice and partnership together.

We are located in the foothills of the Dandenong Ranges in the village of Tecoma. We are a Christian Church devoted to serving our local community. You’re welcome to have a look around our website or come and visit us.

We have moved many of our interactions to remote and online. It is best to contact us via phone or email whilst our premises slowly re-open for gatherings.

Please contact us on (03) 9754 2177 or email office@tecomauc.org.au

Social Distance

Maintaining a healthy social distance does not mean that we need to have a communal or spiritual distance, just a physical separation. Thus Tecoma Uniting Church is now operating ‘virtually’  via Zoom as well as congregating under freer Covid restrictions at the Church building.  Gathering together in one place has limitations but you can still join us via Zoom each Sunday morning at our usual time. Contact the church office for details.

Staying connected also means being able to continue with our offerings that keep the church operating. You can do this either through our U Ethical account by downloading this form with Congregation Account Number: 108373002 and Account Name of  “Tecoma Parish Uniting Church UEthical Enhanced Cash Portfolio”, and returning it to the Office….

or our Bendigo Bank account.
BSB: 633 000
Account: 131789216

  The “Church” is not the building, it is the people and we can stay connected in the Wilderness.

Please contact us on (03) 9754 2177 or email office@tecomauc.org.au
