Who we are

Paddington Uniting Church is a diverse community of people exploring faith, inclusiveness, justice and creativity in our inner-city context. People from the most influential to the most disenfranchised come together in worship.
The Church sustains multiple levels of relationships and interconnection with the wider community and continues to explore emerging ways of ‘being community’, of ‘being Church’ and of sustaining the living Church. As part of this exploration, Paddington Uniting Church has remained a safe and affirming place for members of the LGBTIQ community to worship and continues to advocate for the full inclusion of all people in all aspects of the life of the Church and of society.
The Church runs a wide range of community programs as well as its worship life, and is active in a range of social and environmental justice projects, in order to witness to Christ in a broken world.
Since its establishment 170 years ago the Church has become integral to the history and life of Paddington and of Sydney. We continue to host and develop intentional model projects some of which are now well established Sydney icons. Each is a unique expression of our mission. Woven throughout and within each of these are the strands of community, social justice, creativity, and inclusivity. They provide excellent opportunities for outreach, growth, and faith in action.
