Flood Relief

The United Heritage Church in Sydney has agreed to be a "clearing house" for any funds that come in for Flood Relief through other United Churches. Funds will be kept totally separate from other benevolent work and funds. At least half of the congregation has experienced water damage from the flood on Thanksgiving Day.

Those "Remits"
Friday, 23 September 2016 14:45
Presbyteries and Pastoral Charges will be studying and voting on a number of remits from the last meeting of General Council. A remit is a proposal to make a change in the Basis of Union, which is the Constitution of the Church. These remits if passed will mean major changes for our church structure and the way we live out our faith in the world. Each church member is called to consider these and to vote after study and prayer. The remits and study guides may be found here on the General Council website.
