Six weeks of Dwelling in Prayer

With just six weeks before the 16th Assembly, Uniting Church members across the country are invited to join together in prayer. Each week a new prayer will be offered, often in languages other than English. 

In our Week 1 Prayer, President-elect Rev Sharon Hollis leads us into prayer for all who are preparing for the 16th Assembly and all its members as they seek to become a community of discernment - wise, open, curious and alert to the movement of the Spirit. 

Being Young and Christian

From its inauguration the Uniting Church has affirmed the gifts and voices of young people shaping our life and mission.

Inspired preaching

Close to 300 people from around the country delved into what makes inspired and creative preaching as part of the inaugural PreachFest held from 1-3 June. Watch the sermon shared by Assembly National Consultant Rev Charissa Suli on what it means to preach the Good News when your heart is full of fear or grief.
