Keiraview Uniting Church is a welcoming congregation. We value friendship and fellowship. We are united in diversity. Our people are prepared to listen and think. Our church has a clear vision and mission plan to cultivate, grow and develop disciples for Jesus Christ within the current church community and the local community in which we all live.

Together we follow Jesus’ example and teaching, accepting Him as the Son of God, valuing all of God’s creation and ‘sharing life’s journey with faith, hope and love in Jesus Christ’. We are bible-based and have an adherence to the Apostles’ & Nicene Creeds.

Return to Services at Keiraview – 21 June 9:30 am and 6:00 pm
We are excited to announce our return to onsite worship services together again at Keiraview from Sunday 21 June. Our Safe Church Committee has put together our COVID Safe Plan and are making sure that we have good processes in place to ensure people are kept as safe as possible while joining together as a church family again. Please see below for our conditions of entry.

Live Streaming
For those who do not feel ready to join in worship together onsite our morning services will be “live streaming” each week. Our evening services like to mix it up so sometimes they will live streamed, sometimes they are Zoom services and sometimes they are “self- directed”.  You can find our live streamed services on YouTube HERE  

Subscribe to the Keiraview Uniting Church YouTube Channel
I encourage you to subscribe to our YouTube Channel as this raises our church profile and provides additional functionality if we get over 100 subscribers.  Subscribed does not mean you will get emails from YouTube! But it will make all our services easier for you to find.

Written Service
For those who would like it, the written service is also available online at https://keiraview.org/?page_id=3184 

Changes to COVID Restrictions
The COVID restrictions for NSW have again changed as of 1 July and this removes the 50 person limit for worship services. So there is no need to RSVP in advance for attending either the morning or evening services from now on. You can decide on the day and you can also invite your friends to come along! We will still need to take names and contact details of everyone who attends on the day.

The capacity is now based on the 4 square metres per person rule only and because of our beautiful roomy facilities that means we can cater for 110 people at each service (51 in the church and 59 in the hall). We still need to maintain physical distancing, which means keeping 1.5mts apart as much as practical as this is the best way to ensure we reduce the spread of COVID-19. So the chairs will continue to be spaced the way they currently are for the time being.

Conditions of Entry
Below are our “Conditions of Entry” which we are required to display and uphold. Please note we will not be having morning tea, supper or birthday cakes for the first couple of weeks as we get used to the new way of doing things. We hope that we will soon be able to join together for fellowship over a cuppa too!
