Here at Caloundra Uniting we are focused on discipleship. We believe in;
- growing in faith together,
- praying together, and
- sharing life together.
We believe in worship, witness and service, so in the life of our Church we have a range of faith groups, social groups, and serving groups. For a full list of the groups we have, please contact us.
Caloundra Uniting is a congregation of the Uniting Church in Australia. As part of the UCA we share in a reformed and evangelical heritage, with Jesus as the foundation of who we are and what we believe.
Three denominations came together in 1977 to form the Uniting Church in Australia. The Basis of Union is the document that set the platform for how these churches came together. It outlines the roles of the different councils of the Church including the presbyteries, the synods, and the Assembly.
It states the central affirmations of the Christian faith and is a guide to what is central in the life of the Uniting Church.

Join us for Worship Sunday at 930amGathering for worship is an important part of the life of faith. It’s in worship that we honour God, but also share in the witness of the wider Church. Being together in worship is what makes us Church. When we worship at Caloundra you can expect to experience a traditional style with hymns and responsive prayers. Our service usually runs for 45 minutes and is followed by a time of morning tea and fellowship. During the service there is a kids space where kids are welcome to sit and play with parents and guardians. There’s also a Sunday School where kids can go and spend some time doing activities that teach them more about Jesus. A cry room is also available for our littlest members, where parents and guardians can still hear the service without worry.
Due to Covid, numbers are limited in each service. Please contact the office for more information.
Join us for communion the first Sunday of the month.
