Williamstown Uniting Church – Electra St seeks to be a safe place for everyone regardless of age, and particularly for children and vulnerable adults. Church Council has committed to following the policies and procedures as approved by the Synod of Vic Tas of the Uniting Church. We aim to plan safe programs and ensure safe places. Working with Children Checks are required from our minister, lay preachers, and appointed leaders. We have appointed a Culture of Safety Contact Person, Janine Cuthbert, and also Liezel Masson who are available for anyone who has a safety concern.

At Williamstown Uniting Church – Electra Street all are welcome
We extend a special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, gay, filthy rich or dirt poor. We extend a special welcome to those who are crying newborns, or as skinny as a rake, or who could afford to lose a few pounds.
We welcome you if you can sing like Pavarotti, or are like our minister, Avril (who can’t carry a note in a bucket). You’re welcome here if you’re “just browsing”, just woke up, or just got out of prison. We don’t care if you’re more Christian than the President of the Uniting Church, or haven’t been in church since little Jack’s christening.
We extend a special welcome to those who are over 60 but haven’t grown up yet, and to teenagers who are growing up too fast.
We welcome keep-fit mums; football dads; starving artists; tree huggers; latte sippers; vegetarians; and junk food eaters. We welcome those who are in recovery or who are still addicted.
We welcome you if you’re having problems or you’re down in the dumps, or if you don’t like organized religion – we’ve been there too!
We welcome you if you’re new to Australia and still trying to work out what this crazy country is on about. We’re wondering too.
If you blew all your money on the horses, you’re welcome here. We offer a welcome to those who think the earth is flat, who work too hard, or don’t work, who can’t spell, or who are here because grandma is in town and wanted to go to church.
We welcome those who are inked, pierced, or both. We offer a special welcome to those who could use a prayer right now, had religion shoved down your throat as a kid, or who got lost on the Westgate Bridge and wound up here by mistake.
We welcome tourists, seekers and doubters, bleeding hearts … and you!
