About Us

Welcome to the website of Northcote Uniting Church – Chalice is a contemporary ‘community of faith’ in the heart of Northcote, a vibrant suburb of Melbourne,  Australia.

Chalice’s High Street church buildings were founded in 1854 on the lands of the Wurundjeri people, close to traditional meeting grounds on the crest of Ruckers Hill. In keeping with the Wurundjeri spirit, Chalice continues to be a gathering place for community.



We operate under a vision of “Four Pillars”, which express the values that guide the life of Chalice.

The Four Pillars

  • Spirituality
  • Arts
  • Justice
  • Sustainability

Different paths, one intent

Chalice Community of Faith is the life and soul of Northcote Uniting Church.

We offer a range of opportunities for people to meet, explore, deepen and live our shared and unique spirituality.

Chalice’s many programs offer something for everyone. Including public discussion evenings, art based groups and a host of choirs and community ensembles. All are welcome to participate in any program.
