Nestled in the foothills of Mount Yarrahapinni on the Mid North Coast of NSW is the small rural community of Yarrahapinni. This sub-tropical paradise is located between South West Rocks and Macksville, about 6km from the Pacific Highway and 4km from Stuarts Point, the nearest coastal town. The local farmers run beef cattle, while orchardists produce fruits and nuts such as bananas, avocados, peaches, macadamias and pecans. The area boasts beautiful hinterland, Macleay River and coastal scenery.

The local Uniting Church faith community has served the Yarrahapinni community for many decades from a small, friendly church, set among grassy paddocks. The locals are always pleased to welcome visitors or new members of the community.

Yarrahapinni is part of a group of congregations known collectively as the Lower Macleay River Multi Centre and, as well as Yarrahapinni, includes the South West Rocks and Gladstone congregations. The three congregations share Rev David Kim.
