March 2017 - Launch of a new resource booklet - Introducing the Vision and Mission Principles
The Moderator introduces the new booklet
Introducing the Vision and Mission Principles is a 16 page booklet containing information and exercises to help focus on God's mission. The booklet invites discussion, provokes questions and gives an intentional focus for discerning the renewing work of the Spirit in our day.
This resource is designed for personal reflection, within a congregation or in a group environment where you may be exploring the Strategic Framework of the Synod. There are lots of practical exercises to try as we experience together the vision of the church we are called to live in within our changing world.
It is available as a PDF to dowload here and printed booklets are being distributed to various Uniting Church locations during March 2017. If you would like a printed copy of the booklet or would like to share your experience of using the booklet, please write to Rev David Withers, Strategic Framework Minister via email: David.Withers2@victas.uca.org.au
In February 2017 we started publishing translations of the Vision and Mission Principles and Statements of Intent in languages other than English. We hope that this creates greater accessibility for conversations and discussions about the strategic framework of the synod and that it assists to foster faith, deepen discipleship, partnerships and trust as we seek to act together across cultures.
