Queenscliff Music Festival- Sacred Time, Sacred Place

The Uniting Church has supported the QMF by arranging  “Sacred Time Sacred Place.” each year.  The festival falls on the last weekend of November, and our Church provides an intimate and acoustically excellent venue for artists and festival-goers. Some patrons claim it is the best venue at the festival!
The venue volunteers are from the congregation.

Art shows


The Queenscliff Hall has become a popular place for art groups to exhibit.  Our own SacredEdge Art Exhibition is a significant exhibition opening on the SacredEdge weekend and available to the public for two weeks following. The space caters for shows that are commercial, amateur, and some with a point behind them, such as the “Pillows of Tears” exhibition by local artists. (See picture above) 


QAL, a local group of artists, exhibits on the last weekend of each month, as well as in January. Their exhibitions include demonstrations of pottery and jewellery, with handcrafted furniture, oil and watercolour paintings and glasswork featured in their displays.
