NBUC Manly Site 
4 West Promenade
The Abbey @ Manly
Are you seeking some answers, a place of contemplation and deep spirituality?  
At the Abbey, the focus and resources are not all about a Sunday morning service once a week, but rather, facilitating a number of opportunities to explore and enlarge your faith in many forms and expressions.

At the Abbey, we affirm each person’s individual journey with the sacred and the freedom that God calls us into.

Weekly Sunday Service @ 10am
A contemporary family friendly ‘non-religious’ type of service

We also have our Manly Youth ‘Untitled’ Worship night each month, please check out Youth Page using this LINK for our next one.

Youth Ministry
All our Youth sites are for sharing our faith in Jesus Christ through bible verses, prayers, message, live worship, testimonies and much more.  We hope to encourage each other to have a deeper relationship with Jesus and the simple gospel and engage with Holy Spirit wherever we are.

Gody Play

Godly Play is a Montessori method of telling Bible stories using parables, sacred stories and liturgical lessons about religious traditions using simple materials. Godly Play is used extensively with adults and children in many settings, from schools to hospitals, churches to aged care facilities.

Godly Play can be a way of preparing children to join the worship life of their congregations as they experience sacred stories, symbols and rites and encounter the religious language associated with worship within the context of our faith tradition.

At Manly Uniting Church we have a Godly Play training centre.
