Welcome to Illawarra Presbytery

Illawarra Presbytery consists of representatives from all the Uniting Churches in the Illawarra, Southern Highlands and Shoalhaven regions. These Churches are where lives are changed through worship, learning, and community, and where people are empowered to change the world and make it a better place, following the example and teachings of Jesus.

The congregations are dynamic, down-to-earth groups of people seeking spiritual nourishment, meaningful relationships, and ways to use their talents, skills, and knowledge to serve others.

You will find these Churches refreshingly open, welcoming, fun, and active church communities.

We hope to meet you at worship, a special event, service project, or around the community!


Please visit the News page of this website for the Induction of Rev David Russell.


In the spirit of reconciliation the Presbytery of the Illawarra acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to their elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.
