Partnering with Congregations
Share Sunday

Share Sunday Appeal - God's call to unity.

Partnering together to support our diverse community.

Welcoming everyone exactly as they are

Share Sunday.

Share Sunday is an opportunity for the whole of the Uniting Church to acknowledge the vital community services undertaken by our agencies, parish missions, presbyteries and congregations.

It is also an invitation to continue to explore how we can partner together as we respond to Christ’s calling to serve humanity seeking to create an inclusive, connected and just world.

This year, the focus of our Share Sunday resources is unity, around the theme of ‘God’s call to unity’.

The suggested date for congregations to hold a Share Sunday Service is on Sunday 20 August however you can choose to hold a service at any time if departing from the lectionary is permissible in your context.

I truly feel that I am making a difference...My role is to be their ally, to let them know that they are not alone, to acknowledge what they are going through and how it impacts them."

Matthew’s story.

Children in foster care rarely have this early parenting experience. Let us reflect on Mathew’s life. Even before he was born he was hearing the violent arguments between his parents. His mum could barely soothe herself, as she was alert for the next beating.
