Our community is made up of people from diverse backgrounds who come together to explore their faith openly and honestly in a friendly, non-judgmental environment. An important part of our outreach is for people who want a connection with a church but may not have the time or the energy for traditional forms of participation.
Together, the St John’s and GKI Gereja Kristen Indonesia (GKI) congregations form the Neutral Bay Uniting Church (NBUC). You can learn more about our values here.

Our community is also made up of children and families associated with our child care centre, the community gardeners, participants in activities held on the premises, local artists, people who call on our minister and elders for counselling, international and interstate visitors, and anyone who wishes to explore their spirituality or to engage with transforming ways of living.
We support the Newtown Asylum Seekers Centre. Drop off any food items from this list at the church – list-of-goods-20-sept-16 – and we’ll deliver them to the centre. This started as a Christmas appeal in 2015 and is now ongoing. Thank you to everyone who has donated good for your support.
Our cinema evenings in the candlelit, historic church building have attracted over 100 people who have signed up for advance email notification of screenings. Enjoy a good movie in a great atmosphere.
