Moving from Safe to Brave 

Today, as the nation marks "Sorry Day", we encourage you take part in National Reconciliation Week (NRW) from 27 May – 3 June.

We are reminded this week there is much work to be done to live out our covenant commitment and to walk in deeper relationship as First and Second Peoples. 

This year's theme is "Reconciliation takes action" and we invite you to think about concrete actions you can take and to observe NRW in your worship. A resource has been prepared by the Synod of South Australia.

Shared witness in a global communion

A key feature of the Identity of the Uniting Church in Australia is the desire for a shared witness, faith, and life with others. One expression of this global fellowship is the biennial meeting of the Methodist Consultative Council of the Pacific (MCCP) which took place from 18-20 May with Church leaders from across the region. 

Let's Yarn About Identity

In recent weeks the Assembly has invited people to reflect on the Identity of the Uniting Church. Now you're invited to an online discussion to share your thoughts on what makes us who we are, including:

What the Uniting Church looks like from where I am standing?
What is the UCA identity we are reflecting into the public space?
How is the current context we are living in reshaping our identity?
