Welcome to St Andrews Uniting Church Glenbrook

At St Andrews lives are changed through worship, learning, and community. People are empowered to change the world and make it a better place, following the example and teachings of Jesus.

We are a socially conscious and open congregation seeking to nurture faith. We welcome everyone. We journey together in creative and inclusive ways, exploring questions of faith and life in today's world.

We gather for worship on Sunday mornings at 9:30 am. All are welcome.

A Sunday evening Taize service is held at 6:00 pm.

On Sunday evenings we host our youth group, GUCY for all high school-aged youth. Activities range from Bible studies to movie nights.

St Andrews hosts a range of different social, creative and justice-focused groups. Check out our facebook page for information on upcoming events.

 

Our Minister 

At St Andrew's we work in collaboration with our part-time Minister Rev. Ellie to support the life and ministry of the church. We celebrate and affirm that God has gifted the church with diverse people and passions who are called to build up one another in faith and be the hands and feet of Christ in the world.   

Rev. Ellie Elia has a background in Dramatic Arts, and desires to inspire and encourage spiritual imaginations in all people. She is passionate about seeing the Church be a truly intergenerational, hospitable and generous community that makes a real difference in the world. Ellie is married to Andrew and they have two sons, Joshua and Micah.
