Welcoming the 16th President of the UCA

In three days, the 16th Assembly of the Uniting Church in Australia will meet online for the first time and Rev Sharon Hollis will be installed as our 16th President.

In this feature article, we share some of Sharon's life journey and her vision for us to be courageous, creative and hope-filled, as we discern where God is calling the Uniting Church into the future. 

You can join the Opening Service of Worship for the 16th Assembly and the Installation of Rev Sharon Hollis as President on our website and Facebook page.
Tune in on Saturday 17 July at 11.30am AEST (QLD, NSW, ACT, VIC, and TAS), 11am ACST (SA and NT) and 9.30am AWST (WA).
