The Generate Church SA seeks to be an innovative, growing church proclaiming Jesus Christ, empowered by the Spirit to transform God’s world. Read More.

The Uniting Church (part of generate) is a young church – formed on 22 June 1977, when the Congregational, Methodist, and Presbyterian Churches united to become one. The Basis of Union is the document which affirms our Christian faith and is the guide to what is central to the life of the Uniting Church in Australia.

Our Beliefs

We believe in one eternal God who created of all things out of nothing and continues to create. He exists in three persons, God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
We believe that God loves each and every person and desires a vibrant relationship with each of us so that we might discover abundant life with Him both in this world and in the next.
We believe that sin has separated us from God, and from the relationship He desires with us.
We believe that Jesus Christ as both God and man, is the only one who can reconcile us to God.
We believe that Jesus lived a sinless life, and that He was the only one who could offer enough—His life, so that our sins won’t come between God and us.
We believe Jesus rose from the dead to demonstrate His victory over death. He is currently alive and active in our world today and is revealing Himself to everyone, but not everyone wants to see Him.
We believe that God offers everyone, forgiveness of sins, reconciliation to God and the gift of eternal life. However, it is only when we turn to Jesus and take Him on for ourselves, that this is made a reality in our lives.
We believe that those who have turned to Jesus also receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit enables Christians to become like Christ (although not completely) and equips them to serve with spiritual gifts.
We believe that the Bible is God’s Word, and it is accurate, authoritative and applicable to our everyday lives.
It is our joy, as the community at Sunset Rock who follow Jesus, to serve Him by offering His love to all people through both word and deed. All who come into our midst are welcome to share in this love.

Jane Mitchell

Hi, I’m Jane Mitchell. I began attending Sunset Rock Church in 2004 when my eldest child started at the local High School. As a family we have loved the fellowship, teaching and opportunities to explore our faith. After working part-time in various Administrative roles, COVID-19 gave me an opportunity to begin some formal theological studies, which lead to this ministry in the role of Pastor that was developed from within the congregation.
I love working with this ministry team and this warm, friendly, Jesus-seeking congregation. As we explore our faith together. In my spare time I like to play Tennis, go E-bike riding, read and spend time with family, friends and fur-babies! Feel free to contact me if you need to chat about life and/or faith

Rev Greg Pearce

Hi. I’m Greg Pearce, minister at Sunset Rock. I’m married to Raylene. It’s been an exciting thing for us to return to ministry, especially at Sunset Rock, after I retired a few years back. I’ve made the discovery that the Good News of Jesus only ever gets better, so I love everything about the opportunity we have to talk about him, to receive from him, rich worship, and growing as people through our faith. Do contact me to talk about it and to find your way into this great adventure (0428450100).
Raylene and I are both love the garden, reading, writing, some sports, talking about the weather, movies (Raylene) and, also in Raylene’s case, facebooking with people all around the world, including the Middle East, where she lived for ten years. Lots to talk about!
