About us

We are a congregation of The Uniting Church in Australia and the Cradle Coast Cluster, North West Tasmania.

(Look-up our Facebook page.)

 

Covid safe practices are encouraged at our Worship Centre.

 

At times, our services are led by Worship Teams.

 

Our Resource Ministers are:-

     Rev. Fiona Morrison

     Rev. Susan Malthouse-Law

The resource ministers provide materials, support and supervision to the teams.  They also led Worship regularly in our congregation.

 

The Narrative Lectionary is used in our Worship Services.

 


 

We are committed to our vision and mission statement preamble.

We the people of Devonport Uniting Church are a cloth being woven in love by God, over many years.

Each thread is unique and ever changing as we reflect on stories of faith, both ancient and modern.

The cloth is constantly changing, also, through the welcome introduction of threads of different colours and textures.

Our cloth is to be used to wipe the brow of those in distress, and to warm and comfort those in need, and, importantly, to bring colour and beauty into the lives of the people of Devonport.

We value faith development, community involvement, the honouring of diversity in our cultural setting and service to God in various ways.
