If you are under 18, we want to hear from you! You're invited to share your thoughts about the Uniting Church and our future.
The Act2 project is a conversation taking place across the whole of the Uniting Church to help us think, pray and listen to what God is saying about how the Church might look in the future.
Act2 Gets Creative is a specific invitation for younger generations of the church to be part of this conversation. Your voice is important for us to hear right now and as the generations leading the church into the future.
Your answers could be written or maybe you’d like to get creative and send in a drawing, a photo, a montage, a craft project, a poem, a song, a paragraph, video clip or any other creative form.
Your response will be inspired by these questions:
- What is great about my Uniting Church?
- What are my hopes for the Uniting Church?
- What is my prayer for the Uniting Church?
How do I submit a response?
Responses can be submitted by completing the Entry Form and submitting your artwork. You can do that by clicking the button below or by downloading, printing and returning the Entry Form here. The form includes details for how to submit your creative work electronically or by post.
The Assembly will collect submissions and create a digital display on its website. The artworks will be shared in some form as part of the reconvened 16th Assembly in May.
Prizes will be awarded for the first submission received from each Synod in two categories, 10 years and under, and 11-18 years.
Entries must be received by 31 March 2022.
What is Act2?
The Assembly is the national council of the church leading the Act2 conversation. We want to hear from members across our church, in all places, and of all ages. It is a great time for us to think about what it means to be a community of people who follow Jesus and who want to share God’s message of love in the world. Act2 is a chance to talk about the things that are great about our church as well as the challenges we are facing. It is important for us to ask, what are the things we need to grow our faith and share it with others?
