Serving humanity is at our heart.

As part of the Uniting Church responding to God’s Mission, the relationships we have with congregations are vital.

Our foundation
Christ invites us to serve humanity by creating an inclusive, connected and just world.

Uniting Church congregations deliver over 1000 community services across Victoria and Tasmania.

Over 100 of these congregations partner with Uniting for their community service work.

Just a few examples are:

Wesley Covenant

Uniting has a Covenant with the Wesley Church in Melbourne’s CBD, which recognises the genuine desire of both partners to have a close and meaningful relationship.

The Covenant and the overall relationship between Uniting and the Uniting Church are celebrated every year at a service held at the Wesley Church on the Sunday between 22 June, the anniversary of the creation of the Uniting Church in 1977 and 1 July, the anniversary of the creation of Uniting Vic.Tas in 2017.
