We apologise for any inconvenience or upset. 

We look forward to everyone being able to join us again then. 

Thank you for your understanding. 

 

Manning Uniting Church is open for COVID-safe worship at 9.00am on Sundays.  If you’re not a regular at Manning but would like to join us, you are most welcome to our worship service, provided you have not been recently in an area where COVID-19 is present.
