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.

2023 Share Grants Program

We are delighted to announce that the 2023 Share Grants Program will support 5 projects across 4 Uniting Church congregations.
This year, the submissions received were once again all quality applications with much competition for the limited funding available through the Share Grants Program.
The following projects all received funding to support mission with their communities:
  • Healesville Interchurch Community Care Inc (Healesville UC)
  • North Ringwood Care Emergency Relief (North Ringwood UC)
  • Renshaw Education Assistance Scheme (Hotham Mission)
  • Food For Thought (Hotham Mission)
  • Helping Hand Emergency Food Relief Program (Croydon UC).
This support will make sure that more families have food on the table and disadvantaged students are able to access educational resources and support to stay in school.

We wish them well with their projects. Thank you to the supporters of Uniting’s Share appeals.
Get involved
There are many ways for congregations to get involved.

We welcome your suggestions for occasions when Uniting can contribute to your worship.
