Singing a “New Song”

Australian churches now have access to a new worship resource - Songs of Grace - the newly-published supplement to the ecumenical worship hymnal Together in Song.

Songs of Grace is a 54-song collection and marks the fruition of many years by the Australian Hymnbook Company’s Editorial Committee of discovering and discerning “new song” for the diversity of Christian worship in Australia.  

President Dr Deidre Palmer preached the sermon at a special Service of Thanksgiving for the life of former UAICC National Chairperson Rev. Jeffrey Garrawurra at Darwin's Casuarina Uniting Church on 21 February 2019.

The Uniting Church came together at Darwin's Casuarina Uniting Church on 21 Feb 2019 to give thanks for the life and witness of the late Rev. Jeffrey R Garrawurra.

Presidents, Moderators and General Secretaries past and present joined Rev. Garrawurra's family and former colleagues from the Uniting Aboriginal and Islander Christian Congress to share wonderful stories of his faithful service.
