OUR MULTICULTURAL CHURCH

A Multicultural Church

The Uniting Church rejoices in diversity of races, cultures and languages as God’s gracious gift to the human family. On any Sunday, around 200 congregations within the Uniting Church gather to worship using a language or languages other than English. Around 45 languages, 15 of which are languages of our First Peoples, are used each week across our congregations.

National Conferences

Uniting Church National Conferences provide opportunities for people of the same culture to meet together for worship, fellowship and development. Currently there are 13 National Conferences within the UCA.

An Intercultural and Intergenerational Church

The Assembly Resourcing Unit has developed a workshop to help Uniting Church members explore and learn more about what it means to be an intercultural and intergenerational church. 

FEATURED RESOURCES


Anti-racist worship

Rev. Radhika Sukumar-White has written a paper about what it means to live out a commitment to be intentionally anti-racist specifically in how we worship. It includes practical steps for congregations to think aboout. 


Acknowledgement in language

An Acknowledgement of Country is a way of paying respect to First Peoples whenever we gather together. This poster is available in 11 different languages with two standard versions of the Acknowledgement of Country.

GET INVOLVED

The Uniting Church seeks to be a community that includes and celebrates the rich diversity of God’s created peoples living out the Gospel call. Hear and share stories of faith and hope in Christ transcending cultural barriers and contribute to cross cultural learning and intercultural ministry.
