What we are about

Our vision is to be a growing and loving community touching the lives of people in the Tuggeranong valley.

We believe everyone has God-given gifts to serve one another and the community. We are a varied group of people who believe that what we do, and who we are, has the power to change the world. At Tuggeranong Uniting Church we strive to be a community that honours the diversity found in humanity. We have a variety of theological and political opinions, and we welcome open discussion.

We believe in a loving God, revealed in Jesus Christ, whose spirit is present in the world today. We believe that the Gospel of Jesus calls us into action in the world, to promote justice, peace, equality and basic human rights for all.

Prayer is important to us. Members of the congregation participate in the the worship services through prayers for the world and the community. A group of people gather regularly to pray for our church, for renewal, and in sharing to deepen their spiritual journey.

Our church recognises the basic human rights of future generations for a clean and healthy planet and the protection of the environment. Tuggeranong Uniting is exploring how our faith and the environment are intimately linked. This is leading towards an exciting and innovative reordering of our church life to express our commitment to sustainability as an essential component of Christian faith.

Organising our life

Our faith community is organised by a church council – a body of elders and leaders elected by the congregation to help the congregation shape its vision and work to build up the mission and life of the group.

The Uniting Church

Tuggeranong Uniting is a congregation of the Uniting Church in Australia (UCA). The UCA was formed in 1977 by the coming together of the Presbyterian, Methodist and Congregational churches. The missional and ecumenical vision of the UCA is beautifully articulated in The Basis of Union
