Worship Services

‘A time of joy, hope, wonder and grace, challenging and encouraging of spiritual growth.’

We believe effective and inspirational worship is an essential part of our life as a community of God’s people. We also know that when it comes to worship “one size does not fit all” so we offer distinct worship experiences each Sunday.

Sunday Mornings
This service seeks to present worship that is dynamic and engaging. The music is led by a band and singers with extensive lay involvement. There are also dramatic and visual presentations which utilise current technology. A children’s program of education and worship is run concurrently with this service and a crèche is also available.

Drawing on the riches of the Church’s traditions, from its earliest years to the present, this service endeavours to offer a significant worship experience. This service features music from across the ages, led by pipe organ, and on occasion singers and other instruments.

Sunday Afternoons
A Healing Service is held each quarter at 4.30pm for a 5.00pm start. We praise God for the blessing which folk find at our healing services.



Evening Fellowship
A caring social group which meets on the third Wednesday of the month at 7.30pm.

Acme Fellowship
Forms a link between home and church and community.
The program includes interesting speakers, craft and good fellowship. It meets on the second and forth Wednesday of the month at 1.30 pm.


We have been challenged to read our Bible every day! Perhaps you might like to accept this invitation too!  A Bible-reading-program for the year is available in the foyer.

No matter where you are on life’s journey – there’s a place for you here at the
Colonel Light Gardens Uniting Church.


Christian worship has been conducted on this site since it was part of Mr Overton’s farm in 1849. In 1854 the first building was completed and worship commenced in what was then known as the Goodwood Road Wesleyan Methodist Church. With the establishment of the Garden Suburb, this became the Colonel Light Gardens Methodist Church which in turn became the Daw Park Uniting Church with the formation of the Uniting Church.

The Colonel Light Gardens Uniting Church was formed from four Uniting Church congregations: Daw Park, Lower Mitcham, Colonel Light Gardens and Panorama on 25 November 1994. After much consideration, the decision was reached to dispose of three properties and to redevelop the buildings on the Daw Park site.

The new building complex for the Colonel Light Gardens Church was dedicated on 15 February 1998.
