Morialta Uniting Church’s livestreaming emphasis is an expression of our openness to exploring connections and links with congregations in urban and rural areas, and to resourcing congregations, groups, chaplains, pastoral care, and individual and personal worship.
Out of that openness grew the project “Beyond our Walls”,
begun in October 2013 with monthly filming of Morialta’s normal worship service and production of a DVD for distribution to churches. See some history here
This experience enabled us to respond quickly to the restrictions that accompanied the COVID 19 pandemic, with live-streaming of services commencing in August 2021.
Morialta has resourced this outreach with appropriate equipment and trained operators to ensure presentation skills of a high order. Feedback and critical appraisal inform and guide the presenters, technicians and members of the congregation.
Podcasts are also available on a weekly basis here.

Pastoral Care for all ages
Pastoral care at Morialta Uniting Church is highly valued and draws on the compassion of the whole congregation. We have an amazing network of Caring Connections Contacts (CCCs). Each of these has a list of people with whom they intentionally connect on a regular basis.
Congregation members can choose how to participate in the Caring Connections program:
- to be matched with a CCC;
- to join a self-organising Caring Connections Gathering Group;
- to receive visits from a Designated Visitor, if in residential or aged care;
- or to opt out of any formal involvement.
More information is available in the Caring Connections Program Handbook, available on request from the office.
Our Pastoral Care Team meets monthly to help ensure that everybody is gathered up in the arms of care. Phone calls, personal visits, networking, and handmade cards (including birthday cards for our children and youth) supplement the general love and care that is expressed by all in the congregation.

Baptisms, Weddings & Funerals
Baptism celebrates our identity as people loved by God, and makes us part of the community of those who follow Christ.
Baptisms are normally celebrated during the 10.00am service, where the congregation will welcome you into the community and promise to support you as you begin to live out your baptism or as you help your children to do so. If you would like to be baptised or to bring your children to be baptised please talk to our minister.
The Christian celebration of marriage is an act of worship in which we offer praise to God for the life and love God has given us.
You invite the people gathered to witness your declaration of love to each other and your promises to be faithful to one another, and we ask God’s blessing on your marriage.
You can make an initial inquiry through the church office. Your booking can be confirmed once you have paid a deposit and had your first meeting with our minister. Three or four meetings with the minister will allow you to complete the necessary legal paperwork, complete and discuss the PREPARE* resource, and plan your celebration.
A well-planned funeral or memorial service can help us honour and give thanks for the life of the person who has died as we affirm the Christian understanding that, even after we die, we continue in God’s love. If you are in the position of needing to organise a funeral or memorial service and would like it to be at Morialta, please contact our minister. Funerals can be livestreamed on request and catering can be arranged if desired.
Morialta UC is in the process of seeking a new minister. During that time the congregation will be supported by a Supply Minister – Rev Alison Whish. Should matters requiring urgent attention occur, please use the following contact options.
