At Brunswick Uniting Church we value questioning, searching faith. We believe we are formed in our faith through action and reflection, that faith is about what we do as much as what we believe. We love that children and youth are actively involved in the life of our community.  We also love exploring the big questions… pondering, wondering, imagining.

The Student House program provides a place to live for tertiary students moving from the country to the city.

At BUC, we are mindful that our buildings, indeed our whole culture and society, is built on the dispossession of Aboriginal people – in this case, the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation. The vision and mission statement of the Uniting Church in Victoria & Tasmania begins “Following Christ, walking together as First and Second Peoples…”  In this spirit, BUC has formed a “Walking Together” group to learn, reflect, pray and act together on our relationship with First Peoples.
