Budget lacks vision to build back better
UCA President Dr Deidre Palmer welcomed the Government’s commitment to the nation's economic recovery but says the 2020 Federal Budget is a missed opportunity to bring about a more equitable and fairer Australia.

Woven together in Christ

Uniting Church members from every state and territory came together to reflect on what it means to live out their Christian vocation as part of the President’s Conference webinar “Called by God.” A recording of the webinar is now available to watch.

Anniversary Liturgy

October 22nd marks the second anniversary of Australia’s National Apology to Survivors of Institutional Child Sexual Abuse. A Liturgy and Order of Service will be made available early next week for congregations to mark the anniversary. 

Staying safe online

As part of Children's Week 2020, the National Safe Church Unit will stream a webinar on Wednesday 21 October to support people across the Uniting Church who are engaging with children and young people online. 

A friendly face in a time of need

As part of its September appeal, Frontier Services shares how Bush Chaplain Mitch Fialkowski and Outback Links volunteers are breaking down isolation for farmers like Merv who lives on a 60,000ha station 700km from Perth.

Co-ordinators wanted

New Liturgy for those dying in isolation

In response to COVID-19, the Assembly's Transforming Worship Circle has created a new liturgy resource.

  • Our political leaders as they form budgets and policies for our nation's future. We pray they envision a just recovery for all.
  • All of us, as we listen, discern and have courage to follow where God calls us.  
  • For those who have experienced abuse in our Church, their families and their communities. We remember, acknowledge and lament the harm done. 
  • Those experiencing isolation and hardship, especially during COVID-19.
