Our Community

Gateway Family Services Cottage

As the Blaxland Uniting Church community, we gather for worship, seek to encourage one another, enjoy fellowship and welcome all.  We strive to bring others to God, grow people in their faith and serve one another.  We also care about our congregation and the wider community.

Gateway Family Services (GFS) is a Welfare Service founded and supported by Blaxland Uniting Church.  It has been supporting families in the Blue Mountains since 1990 and in Penrith since 2006.  Gateway has offices at the “Cottage” on the grounds of Blaxland Uniting Church and also in Penrith.

Gateway Family Services is committed to strengthening families and building community.
