General Info

The growing population of this holiday destination Forster / Tuncurry welcomes holiday makers to the area. We love the atmosphere and vibrancy that such an influx brings to the town particularly during the school holidays.   Forster / Tuncurry consists of two towns joined by a single bridge spanning Wallis Lake.  The area’s history can be traced to the timber and fishing industries and whilst oysters are still a dominant industry for the Wallis Lake system the predominant sources of income for the area now comes from tourism and retirement.

The F/T Uniting Church congregation is made up of one worshipping community which has two worship centres.  Sunday worship is conducted in the Forster worship centre whilst the Tuncurry centre is being utilised for both church meetings and hiring to the broader community.  Sunday worship includes elements of both traditional and contemporary worship, with multi media formats regularly used.

In addition to structured worship services both in our church, aged care centres and the Pacific Palms Community Centre, we are part of the wider community and are very much involved in all aspects of it’s life.  Whether this involves sport, service clubs, or volunteering for many community groups, we as a congregation understand that it is only through being in the community and beside our fellow residents that we can live out and share the good news of God’s love.

Forster / Tuncurry is currently lead by lay pastor Geoff Battle.
