The Albert Street Congregation sits in the heart of Brisbane CBD at the corner of Albert Street and Ann Street. We are a member of the Uniting Church in Australia and we are the spiritual home of Wesley Mission Queensland. Since its first acts of compassion and kindness in 1847, the Albert Street Congregation has had a vital presence in the Brisbane CBD, particularly among those who have often found themselves in need or on the margins of society.
As it has done for 170 years, the Congregation endeavours to express the Good News through its worship, witness and service that God continues to transform the world, bring healing and justice for all people. The church is committed to being a welcoming community of Christ: building faith, compassionately serving in mission with faithfulness, integrity and openness.
Albert Street Uniting Church has a community services division called Wesley Mission Queensland which was established in 1907 when affiliated with the Methodist Church (Methodist Central Mission). Currently we provide services throughout Queensland to people from a wide spectrum across the community including: the elderly (retirement living, residential aged care), youth and families at risk of homelessnessthose living with a disability and people struggling with disadvantage who have nowhere else to turn. Wesley Mission Queensland employ a dedicated team of more than 2500 staff and 1500 volunteers. We are committed to addressing the issues facing our community and to offer services that see the person as a whole being created in the image of a loving God.
What does the Uniting Church believe?
The Uniting Church is Australia’s third largest Christian denomination. It was formed in 1977 as a result of the coming together of the Methodist, Presbyterian and Congregational churches in Australia.
