​What does it mean to be Uniting Church?

 

In the spirit of Uniting we

  • are committed to dialogue and cooperation with other churches and to participation in state and national ecumenical bodies and international bodies such as the World Council of Churches;

  • are willing to explore the implications of being in a community with people of many faiths and what this means for the way we express and share our faith;

  • accept women and men as equals in ministry, including ordained ministries, and encourage women in leadership;

  • embr​ace diversity and are open to discuss controversial issues and what it means to be inclusive of all people and to respect differences;

  • ​​involve all people in oversight and governance, seeking to make decisions together rather than being hierarchical. We rely on consensus decision making.
