An Intercultural and Integenerational Church

INTERCULTURAL AND INTERGENERATIONAL WORKSHOP

How can people of different cultures and generations live out their faith together where everyone is welcome and valued, learning from the experience of First Peoples?

The Assembly Resourcing Unit (ARU) has developed a workshop to explore these important questions in how we live out our life and ministry as the people of God today.

The Uniting Church is blessed with a growing number of culturally diverse members and next generation leaders.

There is a great need for us all in the Uniting Church to be intentional in creating spaces where all cultures and generations feel welcomed. 

The workshop is designed to equip local Uniting Church members and leaders to work across different cultures and age groups in their own context.

Topics include:

  1. Who we are as a multicultural Uniting Church and how diverse groups engage with one another in building the body of Christ
  2. How First Peoples' experiences living together with diversity help us understand our context and relationship in a multicultural church 
  3. How we understand contexts of multi, mono, cross and inter cultural
  4. What is meant by being intergenerational and the experiences of different generations
  5. How we strategically develop an intercultural and intergenerational church

National Consultants Rev. Charissa Suli and Rev. Dr Apwee Ting have led the workshops in a number of places in collaboration with Synods, Presbyteries and local congregations.
