Our churches can be found deep in the heart of our cities, or in our most isolated and outback towns. Many congregations have existed for years while others are new and worship in different ways. Even though our congregations can be vastly different, each is a community in which people seek to follow Jesus, learn about God, share their faith, care for each other, serve the local community and seek to live faithfully and with real joy. This is the kind of engaging church that we are.
The Assembly is the national council of the Uniting Church in Australia and has responsibility in matters of doctrine, worship, government and discipline. It sets national policy and promotes the Church's mission in the world. The Assembly also establishes standards of theological training and reception of ministers from other communions, and pursues the goal of the worldwide union of all Christ's church.
