Services & Community

North Balwyn Uniting Church places a strong emphasis on mission and service to the community.  We encourage members to address and support the needs of people in the Church and the wider community, both locally and overseas.

Chaplaincy in Schools

NBUC provides regular support and funding for chaplaincy at Balwyn High School.


‘Good Grub’

‘Good Grub’ is an activity of Uniting Care Community Options, providing a midday meal at Highbury Grove Uniting Church, Kew each Tuesday.  Staffed by about 30 volunteers on a roster basis, it also provides counselling when required and a food bank.

Papua New Guinea (PNG) Fresh Water Project

The PNG Fresh Water Project is an activity of UnitingWorld, in conjunction with the United Church of Papua New Guinea.  The Project assists in reducing the level of poverty in selected villages through the provision of safe, sustainable water supplies.  Funds are raised for this Project at concerts and at an annual appeal.

Lunches are held on some Sundays throughout the year after a church service. Funds are raised for the important work that the UNHCR undertakes in providing life-saving aid and protection to refugee families.


Sammy Stamp Group

The Sammy Stamp Group is part of the UCF (Uniting Church Fellowship) fundraising effort, which has raised thousands of dollars for Missions by trimming and sorting used stamps. The Group welcomes your occasional, regular or at-home help.   Stamps may be left at the Church.
