The Uniting Church Adult Fellowship seeks to develop, encourage and strengthen its members in fellowship, knowledge and love of our Lord Jesus Christ, and through this to minister prayerfully and practically, in outreach to others.
Our objectives are to:
- Support and encourage city, suburban and rural groups
- Make effective contact with new and younger groups
- Increase participation of women and men
- Promote knowledge of, and support for the Mission work of UCA (e.g. The National and World Mission and Frontier Services)
The Uniting Church Adult Fellowship in South Australia is alive and well with approximately 100 affiliated groups and 1600 members across the State.
We are fortunate to have an office in the Uniting Church SA building at 212 Pirie St which is staffed three days a week; Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday 8:30am to 1:30pm.
God bless you all as you continue to love and serve the Lord.
