The Uniting Church in South Australia is associated with a number of organisations who provide vital services and support, locally and Australia wide.
Below is a list of opportunities to give financially to support the ongoing work of the Uniting Church SA.
Brooklyn Park Refurbishment Project
The Brooklyn Park Refurbishment Project represents an exciting new chapter in the life of Christian mission, discipleship and leadership for the Uniting Church in South Australia. The development will join together the Adelaide College of Divinity, the Uniting Aboriginal and Islander Christian Congress, Training Aboriginal Christian Leaders (TACL), Adelaide West Uniting Church, and the Uniting Church SA’s Mission & Leadership Development ministry centre, which includes Uniting College for Leadership & Theology and the Mission Resourcing team. If you have a passion for this developing ministry at Brooklyn Park you can donate towards this project here.
Uniting Church SA Relief Fund
The Uniting Church SA relief fund was established by the Property Trust for the purpose of assisting the Church to fulfil its mission in serving the community, in caring for people and in working for their welfare, including to enable the appointment of a chaplain to:
- Bushfire Relief SA
- Mental Health Chaplaincy
- Prision Ministry Chaplaincy
- Refugee & Asylum Seeker support (link to be provided)
Remote Area Ministry
Frontier Services will fund a full-time remote ministry position called the Parkin/Sturt Patrol. However, additional funding for vehicles and communicationsequipment will be required. With this in mind, the Uniting Church SA has established a fund for remote area ministry. This fund will go towards vehicle costs – and may assist in similar costs for two other remote patrols. At this stage, the additional patrols being considered include one operating out of Ceduna and a mobile Aboriginal patrol. To support this fund please donate here.
You can follow the story of the Parkin/Sturt patrol here.
