The Church


Our mission

St Michael’s mission is to be a vibrant, inclusive, hospitable and community-focused congregation, sharing progressive Christian theology and practice – embracing spirituality, the arts, wellbeing, justice and compassion.

Our Vision

St Michael’s vision is to be a nurturing and dynamic Christian Spiritual community contributing to a world where each person and all creation can flourish and enjoy abundant life within the city of St Michael’s and beyond.


Sunday Gatherings in the church commence at 10am.
From early Sunday afternoon, video recordings of the Sunday Gathering can be viewed here.

First and Second Peoples

We acknowledge the Wurundjeri and Boon Wurrung peoples of the Kulin Nation,
the traditional custodians of the land on which the church was built and the places where we live and work.
We pay our respects to their elders, past and present.
We stand in solidarity with the Statement from the Heart and the call for Treaty, Voice and Truth.

Public Theology

As a congregation of the Uniting Church in Australia, St Michael’s is committed to seeking the Common Good through involvement in the public life of our city and nation.
We hold foundational Christian values regarding the equal rights of every human person irrespective of race, class, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or age, and our responsibility for the care of planet earth.


What people are saying about St Michael’s

Thanks to Rev Dr Mayman and the team at St Michael’s. I’ve become a regular listener to the YouTube messages and beautiful music. I live outside Melbourne in regional Victoria, and this progressive and thoughtful service during COVID times has been really extraordinary. I continue to be challenged and re-assured by these online services and hope to visit in person one day. Thanks Rev Dr Mayman for being such a light in dark times, for fighting for justice (e.g. for climate and rainbow people). Also lovely listening to the beautiful church organ and classic music thanks.
