The Altona Uniting Church project comprises of a  worship space for 150 people, small chapel connecting to the worship space, foyer, meeting rooms and offices.

The church is shaped like an aircraft hanger with an attached wing.  These allusions to aerodrome and flight represent links with aviation in this area.

The high point of the hangar roof is directly over the worship space.  The altar or table is placed in the centre, the focal point or worship.  All of the various church spaces are grouped within a single rectangular plan that is surrounded by hangar and winged roofs.
