We extend to you a special welcome to The Merthyr Road Uniting Church. We offer a special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, widowed, gay, filthy rich, comfortable, or dirt poor. We extend a special welcome to those who are crying new- borns, skinny as a rake or could afford to lose a few kilos. You’re welcome if you are sad or celebrating, feeling confused and overwhelmed, high on life or just need to sit a while.

We welcome you if you can sing like Pavarotti or 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 Pope or the Moderator of the Uniting Church, or haven’t been to church since little Jack’s baptism.

We extend a special welcome to those who are over 60, but not 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, junk-food eaters. We welcome those who are in recovery or still addicted. We welcome you if you’re having problems or you’re down in the dumps or if you don’t like ‘organised religion’. We’ve been there 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, ‘work too hard’ don’t work, can’t spell, or because grandma is visiting 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 got lost on Brunswick Street and wound up here by mistake. We welcome tourists, seekers and doubters, bleeding hearts, the sad and sorrowful, the overwhelmed and YOU!
