In light of the Victorian government’s restrictions, the St Michael’s Uniting Church building is currently closed to help slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). Unfortunately our live music programs have been postponed.
Each week the music program at St Michael’s brings us some of the best musicians and music that Australia has to offer to enrich our experience during Sunday services and special events.
