Aireys Inlet Uniting Church congregation is a group of
Regular worshippers who live in Aireys Inlet or surrounds
Visitors who have holiday homes in the area and worship with us when they are on the coast - (we call them “swallows”)
Other visitors, many from interstate and overseas who enrich our fellowship from time to time
On the first Friday of the month we join with members of the community for Coffee and Chat, starting around 10 AM. We have a delightful time catching up with old friends and meeting new ones. All are welcome to come for a cuppa and some fellowship. Please feel free to join us.
Our Mission Statement
The Aireys Inlet Combined Churches run a Community Carols event in the first week in December. This features a pageant performed by the students of the Aireys Inlet Primary School.
The Aireys Inlet congregation has formed a community support group under the Community Refugee Sponsorship & Integration Pilot (CRISP) project. With excellent support from the Surf Coast congregations and the Presbytery of Port Phillip West's Simpson fund, we have raised sufficient funds to bring a refugee family from overseas to settle in Aireys Inlet.
Lunch at the Pub
"Lunch at the Pub" is held at the Aireys Inlet Hotel on the first Friday of every month starting at 12 noon. We welcome everyone including newcomers, old-timers and visitors to town. A warm greeting and good conversation over a delicious lunch is guaranteed. Transport can be provided to those who require it.
This Uniting-wide event is held at the Aireys Inlet Community hall annually on Shrove Tuesday.
Prayer Shawl Ministry
Who are we? We Yarn and Yarn We are an ecumenical group of knitters who meet weekly to knit shawls and enjoy Christian fellowship together. We work with yarn to knit the shawl and we yarn with each other on topics that will help us walk the Christian walk to make a difference in our community, all while our shawls are growing

Several members of our congregation love to work creatively with flower arrangements to artistically depict a Bible reading of the day.
