Barry's Place

WE REGRET BARRY'S PLACE IS TEMPORARY CLOSED DUE TO  COVID-19

Barry's Place is a drop-in-centre for anyone who would like friendly company, a warm place to go on a cold day (or a cool place on a hot day) and cup of tea, coffee or chocolate.  Our willing volunteers can help with a range of crafts, a computer, reading or gentle discussion.

Barry's Place  opening times are Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday 12.30pm - 3pm.

Social Justice

Our Congregation has a proud record of supporting the rights of Australia's First Peoples, immigrants and refugees. It supports the work of indigenous groups, Uniting Care agencies, Frontier Services and many overseas aid organisations.

Regular Sunday worship

Come and worship with us at 10am Sunday mornings. We enjoy uplifting worship worthy of a loving and inclusive God.

All are welcome regardless of age, gender, race, or sexual orientation. We particularly welcome faith seekers: anyone who is keen to find meaning and purpose in a topsy-turvy and often contradictory world.

Houses of Hope - Hyslop House

Our congregation is a proud partner to Lentara and Baptcare in supporting Asylum Seekers through housing accomodation and physical needs where possible.

Seasonal Services and Special events

Our congregation loves to get involved in many occasional and regular events such as the annual Burwood Traders Day, singing Christmas Carols in Toorak Rd at Christmas time, International Day of Peace and many others. Please see our Events page for more details of upcoming events.

Emergency Relief

Our congregation actively support Uniting and its programs of care, support and emergency relief. To that end we participate in Uniting's Pancake Day offering delicious pancakes, tea and coffee as well as a friendly chat with passersby, our bus-stop folk and local traders.

Our congregation relies upon the expertise and resources of our local emergency relief agencies - Uniting at Burwood Heights Uniting (corner of Burwood Highway and Blackburn Rd) and Camcare ( 51 St Johns Ave, Camberwell and 4 Y Street Ashburton).

We support the physical needs of these agencies where-ever possible and do not offer emergency relief ourselves.
