Are you ready for UCA Act2?
Today we launch the UCA Act2 Project - in which we invite Uniting Church members to consider our future together as a people of God on the way (Basis of Union, para 18).

As we look to the future, what is God saying to us as the UCA about how we order our life so we can be committed to transforming lives and communities in God’s love?

In the lead up to the 16th Assembly in July 2021, members of the Uniting Church, our congregations, agencies, schools and Councils, are invited to engage in a conversation about the future to which God is calling our Church.

Be part of the UCA Act2 Project as we discern God’s way together.
