It's Advent 3 and more UCA members are singing their hearts out to Tell A Story of Hope. We hope that you can sing along with friends of the Assembly Transforming Worship Circle, whether you're worshipping face-to-face, at home or just to remind yourself of the loving community of faith around you.
Who do you say we are? "A voice of challenge and change in the political and cultural landscape of Australian society" or "an institution stuck in the past, tied to outdated structures and ways of being church". Take the Assembly's Act2 Survey and tell us in your words what the UCA should look like in the future.
From next week UCA congregations and faith communities will be able to download Dr Deidre Palmer's 2020 Christmas video message. Click through and bookmark the link on our Vimeo page, and we'll let you know as soon as it's ready.

10 December was World Human Rights Day, and advocates want human rights to be central in shaping our post-COVID world. Earlier this year the Assembly worked with Synods and Agencies to produce a blueprint for a just recovery.
