We are a diverse community of people from all ages and backgrounds who come together for worship and to share in community.
Sunday morning worship starts 9.30am.
Our congregation has a wide variety of ages including families with children and teenagers. We are a multi-cultural group with members coming from a wide variety of birthplaces and ethnic origins. We aim to be inclusive and theologically broad.
Many members are involved in outreach, in spiritual and earthly ways. Many members have a keen awareness and are actively involved in social justice issues and the broader activities of the church. The congregation has many members who are individually and in groups actively involved with a wide variety of outreach and community work: including school chaplaincy, aged care, pastoral support, local schools, refugee advocacy and family support, foster care and disability support and humanitarian projects in East Timor and New Zealand.
As opportunities and needs arise, the congregation tends to respond quickly, and is continually open to new ideas and directions, and particularly to strengthening our ability to do these things well.
The church is located in an inner metropolitan area, much of which is within 10 – 15km of the Perth CBD. The area is socio-economically mixed, but with many features of a low socio-economic area, including some suburbs that have a high concentration of public housing, and areas of higher than average unemployment, and is culturally mixed. The area also has pockets of medium to high-density housing development, areas accommodating many students because of the University and TAFEs located in the area, and numerous aged care/seniors communities.

Star Street Uniting Church is governed by a Church Council. The church council consists of 7 elected members and people in ministry and meets every month. The church council’s role is to maintain an overview of the direction and mission of the congregation and to oversee the work of the working groups.
After a review of the Working Groups they were adapted to reflect the congregation’s current needs. This meant the Council now directly governs financial matters, property matters and fostering a community spirit in the congregation by organising regular events.
Church Councilors also act as Elders ensuring systems are in place to meet the pastoral needs of regular worshipers and members; crisis and emergency situations; and people connected through the broader ministry and work of the congregation.
Groups meet regularly to do the work of the congregation. These groups are convened by members of the Church Council and report to the council regularly. All groups are open to anyone interested in participating.
The groups are:
The Church office is staffed each Wednesday morning by volunteers assisting with the distribution of food parcels.
