How do Human Rights shape a Just Society?

Every person has the right to education (Article 26 - Universal Declaration of Human Rights, 1948), but not everyone gets it. In fact, some congregations that support school breakfast programs know all too well that children going to school without breakfast can fall behind their peers because of their inability to maintain attention and focus.


Flipping for a Cause - Pancake Day 2024

Each month more and more are attending Emergency Relief Centres as they struggle to put food on the table. You can help by hosting your own Pancake Day event either on Shrove Tuesday or on any other day before the 31st May 2024


Reflection of the Week - 23rd January 2024

At times we experience life as difficult. Our spiritual life may appear to be dry or overwhelming. Our sins may seem to be too much to overcome. And our relationship with God may appear to be too difficult to foster.


Reflection of the Week - 19th December 2023

'I am offering you life or death. Choose life, then, so that you and your descendants may live in the love of Yahweh, your God, obeying his voice, holding fast to him’ (Deuteronomy 30:19–20).


Opportunities to serve the councils of the Church

ACHA Christmas Hampers

This year UnitingCare and Adelaide Community Healthcare Alliance Incorporated (ACHA) joined together in a wonderful collaborative effort to help those in need at Christmas!


Reflection of the Week - 12th December 2023

We long for that moment when everything will be made right; when our world will be released from pain, poverty and injustice. We wait in hope, however; sure in the knowledge that God’s promises never fail, and that Jesus is already King.


Advent Reflection

We are now entering Advent, the season that begins the Church’s year, and it reminds us that our hope is not in ourselves but in God coming to us.


Reflection of the Week - 21st November 2023

The crossing of the Red Sea is an event of tremendous drama. Older generations might remember Charlton Heston in the famous scene in the movie The Ten Commandments (1956), in which the water literally forms walls in the sea on either side of the fleeing Israelites.


Reflection of the Week - 14th November 2023

This is an extraordinarily moving story because it shows so clearly the reality of grief. A loved brother has died, and his sisters are prostrated with sadness – and they're confused and resentful, because they believe Jesus could have saved him.
