Uniting Church members joined a thousand people gathered outside Parliament House on its first day of sitting calling for stronger action on climate change.

The Festival was held in Newcastle from 17-20 May, organised by a group of passionate people who share an interest in justice, spirituality, music and art.
Hosted at Adamstown and Merewether Uniting Churches, the Festival brought these interests together with a diverse program, including a film competition, workshops, talks, artistic installations and musical performances.
Participants travelled from across the country coming from different denominations and backgrounds.
