In our worship we seek to be encouraging and challenged in Jesus for the renewal in the Holy Spirit in heart, body and mind. We value open, generous and inclusive worship, the sharing of communion, the exploration of scripture and prayer for each other and the wider world. We aim for worship reflecting truth, beauty and goodness.

WE ARE THE UNITING CHURCH
The Uniting Church SA seeks to be an innovative, growing church proclaiming Jesus Christ, empowered by the Spirit to transform God’s world. Read More.
The Uniting Church is a young church – formed on 22 June 1977, when the Congregational, Methodist, and Presbyterian Churches united to become one. The Basis of Union is the document which affirms our Christian faith and is the guide to what is central to the life of the Uniting Church in Australia. Read the Basis of Union here.
HISTORY & VISION
Our vision is to be an inclusive and affirming community, sharing creatively the fullness of our life in Christ.
The Christ Church Wayville congregation began as the Unley Methodist Church – tributes to this history can be found in our building’s stained glass windows and in some of the memorials located on site.
The current building was completed in 1983, and the stained glass windows in the foyer were taken from the former building to incorporate in the new one. The artist, Cedar Prest, was commissioned to design additional windows to incorporate into the new building.*
The church building was designed to cater to the needs of the congregation and those of Parkin-Wesley College. The College has now moved to Brooklyn Park and has since changed its name to Uniting College for Leadership & Theology. The site adjoining the current church property is now used by Eldercare The Lodge, Wayville. This change gave our congregation the opportunity to use the church building more creatively through the Effective Living Centre, which was established in 1998.
Christ Church Wayville is part of the Uniting Church in Australia, Presbytery and Synod of South Australia. The Effective Living Centre is a mission centre of the Uniting Church SA Mission and Leadership Development ministry centre (formerly Mission Resourcing).
*Regular maintenance is required to protect the stained glass windows. Donations are appreciated.
