We are committed to the faith formation of our children and youth ministries through to the pastoral care of our active seniors. We are the sole Taiwanese speaking Uniting Church congregation in Australia and have recently launched our English ministry. Our congregation life includes two Sunday morning services (English, Taiwanese), a Friday night youth and young adults service, a large Sunday School, Bible studies and home groups, and fellowship activities for older members. Our hope is for God to use our Taiwanese culture to bring the gospel to Brisbane’s multicultural community.
