Book in yourAct2 Conversation
As we look to the future, what is God saying to us as the Uniting Church about how we order our life so we can be committed to transforming lives and communities in God’s love? We’re inviting you to be a part of the UCA Act2 project as we discern God’s way together.
In the lead up to the 16th Assembly, members of the Uniting Church, its congregations, agencies, schools and Councils, are invited to engage in a conversation about the future to which God is calling our Church.
The Uniting Church has been on a journey since it began 43 years ago. Things have changed, in our Church, in our country and in the world. Whilst Christians make up a smaller proportion of Australian society, Australian Christians are more culturally and theologically diverse than they were at the time of union. Society’s attitudes towards Christianity have become more complex and less predictable. It’s time to check the health of our Church and ask, ‘where is God leading us, what is God calling us to do in this new context and how do we order our lives to best fulfil that calling?’
Many UCA members have already engaged with this conversation by reading the Introduction and participating in the Survey. Members are being asked to share their insights, experiences and learnings, and to offer their ideas, expertise and hopes.
One way you can participate in the Act2 Project is to be part of an Online Conversation. We’ll be hosting five open Zoom conversations so we can listen to each other about our thoughts and ideas, the challenges we are facing and what the next steps might be. You’ll have to register for these as numbers are limited. 22 participants will meet with Sharon Hollis (President-Elect), Deidre Palmer (President) and Colleen Geyer (Assembly General Secretary) for these conversations.
We hope too that these might be conversations you have in your local context, and then you let us know what came out of them. Resources for these conversations will be provided in the new year.
The Conversation Forum is now full and is not accepting any more subscribers. If you haven’t filled out the survey, please click here and read the introduction article and fill out the survey.
