 Social Justice Task Group

Justice Peace and Integrity of Creation Working Group.

In 2009 the Presbytery established a working group to reflect on and bring before Presbytery issues of Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation.

The role of the working group will be

  • to address issues that impact on the church in Gippsland and the wider community of Gippsland;

  • to act as a reference group for members of congregations, churches and parishes wishing to explore issues of justice, peace and integrity of creation;

  • to act as a working group to which Presbytery can refer matters for consideration and report (including issues that are referred from Synod or Assembly).

  • To act as a link for the Presbytery with with the Justice and International Mission Unit at the Synod and with Uniting World and Uniting Justice at the Assembly.

The operation of the working group

The group will consist of a Convenor and up to five members with power to co-opt. The group will meet as required, perhaps three or four times a year face to face. It may chose to work via e-mail or using skype or other technologies. It will report at least annually to the Presbytery and its Standing Committee and at other times when appropriate.
