More About Hillston-Gunbar Parish.

Our 4 congregations are 40; 60 and 94 kms from Hillston, respectively, so it is important that our scattered congregations feel part of the one Hillston-Gunbar Parish.

Like most congregations in the Riverina Presbytery we are lay-led and have been for many years.

Hillston depends on Baptist and Anglican Churches more now that we ever did. And this is reciprocal. When we are short on a preacher our people are directed to one of the other churches. We share with the Baptists the first Sunday of each month, alternating our places of worship and include the Anglicans whenever they can arrange a service. Our relationship with the other denominations has been greatly strengthened and continues to grow.

Hillston-Gunbar has a welfare account to assist people in our area who are in crises. We also provide special on-going financial support for local families in need.

Merriwagga Church Hall is the social hub of that tiny community each week for fellowship and craft.

We provide pastoral care and worship services for the aged care facilities in Hillston

Our Vision Statement is to be an inclusive, generous and courageous faith community that reaches out to form relationships that transform lives and communities.

Depending on time, man-power and financial resources we will strive to embrace opportunities for mission, recognise the spiritual gifts in others and encourage their growth and use.

We will continue to work together with the community and other denominations and faiths by being a continuing witness to Jesus Christ
