Our Story

Corio-Norlane Church of the Uniting Church in Australia is the amalgamation of two congregations – Corio Uniting Church, Hendy Street Corio and St Stephen’s, Norlane Uniting Church into the Corio-Norlane Congregation.  Recently our buildings have been refurbished and provide a multipurpose place for worship, activities, and an improved environment for Uniting Care Geelong (Norlane).

Within our complex we have hosted our welfare agency, originally PEX Welfare, since the late 1970’s. This is now part of the wider Uniting Care – Geelong agency of the Uniting Church.

Our site also hosts the Barwon Health – Dorothy Thompson Day Centre. Services include day programs for the frail aged and recreational activities for the frail aged and socially isolated and those with disabilities.

Recently we have worked with RECLINK on the upgrade of the garden. We wish to express our thanks to RECLINK for the work they have done on the front reflective garden, driveway garden, and vegetable/community garden space.
