Comboyne village is located on the picturesque Comboyne Plateau south-west of Port Macquarie and Wauchope and north of Taree.

The Uniting Church has a church on the main street of Comboyne, where people of all Christian churches gather for worship.

Most attendees regard themselves primarily as Christians, and attend irrespective of the denomination leading. 

Leadership is undertaken in turn by Uniting, Presbyterian, Church of Christ, and Anglican churches, with Catholic Mass being held at 10am on the Saturday preceding the first Sunday of each month.  When there are five Sundays in a month, joyful combined "Fifth Sunday Family Services" are organised by Comboyne Christian Fellowship.

The Comboyne congregation and the Wauchope congregation comprise the Wauchope and District Uniting Church.


Coronavirus impacts

Covid-safe services have now resumed for all but the Catholic Mass (still in recess), and are operated in accordance with our Covid-safe plan, with social distancing, no communal singing or passing books around.  All attendees register at the door, with free masks and hand sanitizer provided.

Uniting Church resources on how to handle this pandemic are available on the National Assembly and NSW/ACT Synod websites.
