The Uniting Church rejoices in diversity of races, cultures and languages as God’s gracious gift to the human family.
In 1985, the Uniting Church Assembly made the declaration “We are a multicultural church.” We continue on our journey to fully realise what it means to be a multicultural church, living faith and life cross-culturally.
We do this by:
building relationships that are based on mutual respect, collaboration and recognition of the gifts and calling of peoples of diverse cultural and language backgrounds
assisting the Church to fully utilise the gifts and calling of members from culturally diverse backgrounds
continuing to develop respectful and reconciling relationships with First peoples across the life of the church
developing culturally sensitive and appropriate policies that respond to the needs of UCA members
fostering models of cross-cultural ministry and mission, outreach and evangelism that reflect the hospitality of God
