The 16th Assembly is the triennial decision-making meeting of the national Council of the Uniting Church, which guides the life of the Church and its advocacy over the next three years.
This year, for the first time, the triennial Assembly meeting will take place online from 17-18 July 2021, a decision made due to protect the health and saftey of members in the context of COVID-19. The Assembly meeting will then reconvene in 2022 when a face-to-face meeting is possible.
About the 16th Assembly
Discerning the spirit together
Elected members come together to discern the guidance of the Holy Spirit in a meeting that encourages community and listening to one another in openness and humility.
This Assembly will bring together 200 members from Synods and Presbyteries, with office holders, Uniting Aboriginal and Islander Christian Congress members, youthful members and others to form a national decision-making body.
The Uniting Church in Australia believes that we hear the voice of God through the councils of our Church, so time is also set aside for prayer, worship and Bible studies.
Key moments of the 16th Assembly online will be livestreamed. Stay tuned for more information.
