Penguin is a quiet coastal town at the foot of rich Northwest farmlands looking north across Bass Strait. The Uniting Church holds a prominent position in the main street, on the beach front. The beautiful old wooden federation style building with unique ‘key-hole’ stain glass windows provides a focal point for the community and many tourists. The worshipping congregation has a mission to be open to God and His love in Jesus Christ and to be open and welcoming to the community. Holiday makers find a warm and friendly home away from home. The church serves through its many ministries to the local schools, craft groups, social activities, ministry to the local age care home, social and justice concerns and overseas missions ( to name a few).
