What is the Engagement Ministry Centre?

The Engagement Ministry Centre at the Synod is made up of a small, dedicated team of communications specialists. We develop a range of materials designed to encourage and support communication within the church and between the church and the wider community.

Alongside the publication of New Times and our weekly newsletter UC e-News, we also offer congregations and organisations linked to the Uniting Church a whole host of communications services, including:
