Manningham Uniting Church is, at it’s core, a community of faith. We are a community that is led by the beliefs of the Uniting Church in Australia (for more information).
The Uniting Church confidently believes that through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, God brings us into right relationship with God, whereby in faith we can:
- live in a close, loving, personal, dynamic relationship with the living God;
- participate in the worshipping, caring and serving community of Christians;
- receive God’s gifts so that life can be what God means it to be – loving, purposeful, joyful, eternal; and
- tell others of this good news and live it out in acts of compassion, service and justice in the community.
What this means on a day to day basis is that we live out these elements through being present in the wider community by offering a space where you can explore your spiritual journey in a supportive and flexible environment.
This presence is on an individual, local, national and global platform through providing meaningful worship opportunities, learning opportunities, discipleship, justice and participating in purposeful mission.
Manningham Uniting Church is made up of a diverse group of people. The offerings that people provide cover a wide range of gifts and talents.
While we do have employed ministry and administration staff, the time and the passion offered by those in volunteer positions help create a space that is fulfilling and engaging for all. If you are looking for a space to be present in, there is a place for you.
Our present priorities ‘children, young people and families’ along with the ‘ageing community’ are designed to help foster a sense of purpose and value amongst the children, young people and families, while honouring the wisdom and experience of the ageing community. These priorities are being achieved through combined activities and individual interactions throughout the community.
As followers of Christ, Manningham Uniting Church will be welcoming of all people including otherwise marginalised members of our society.
Ever more actively, live out our Social Justice activity in and beyond our Manningham Community, as our own congregation and in collaboration with other churches and community groups.
Manningham UC adopts a policy and practice which welcomes and embraces the spectrum of theological understanding from traditional to more progressive theology.
