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.
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:
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.
Pancake Day, or Shrove Tuesday, is the last day to eat all of the luxury foods in the pantry before the start of Lent, which is a time of abstinence and reflection in the 40 days before Easter.
Pancake Day is a great chance to get together, have some fun and make a difference. Since 2002, Pancake Day has raised over $2.4 million for local communities across Victoria and Tasmania.
Each year congregations across Victoria and Tasmania host Pancake Day events to raise vital funds to support people in our communities experiencing crisis, vulnerability and disadvantage.
This year we're adding an extra dimension to Pancake Day fundraising activities and inviting congregations to join us in the Coffee Cup Challenge.
