Sale of Venues sites at Elanora and Naamaroo (Lane Cove)

The Synod Standing Committee has recently reached the difficult decision to sell our Uniting Venues sites at Elanora and Naamaroo (Lane Cove). The North Parramatta site, the Centre for Ministry, will continue to operate.

We are doing everything we can to support our employees who will be impacted by this sale, and we want to express our deep appreciation to all those who have worked for the venues during this time.

This decision is in no way a reflection of the contributions made by the Venue’s teams over many years, nor does it diminish the significant contribution made by these sites to the ministry and mission of the Church. 

On behalf of the Synod Standing Committee and the Synod, we would like to thank all present and past staff of Elanora and Naamaroo for the wonderful passion, hard work and dedication over the years you have offered, particularly in the last two years as we have navigated more challenging times caused by COVID-19.

 If you have any questions about this decision, please reach out to at

Rev. Jane Fry, General Secretary
