Growing life-giving communities that connect people, faith and life.


Suburban Seeds seeks to

  • love God and neighbour by joining in with the local community; supporting what is already going on, working in partnerships with organisations, responding to the community in order to enrich and develop community life, both in physical emotional, social and spiritual ways. 

  • be a welcoming, inclusive, safe, affirming community where it is safe to explore faith and ask questions.

  • grow a network of faith communities - people gathered together in small groups exploring what it means to follow Jesus and love their neighbour, connecting faith with life.​


Suburban Seeds is a Ministry of the Parramatta-Nepean Presbytery, which belongs to the Uniting Church in Australia and we adhere to the Basis Union
