Two papers commissioned by the MSR about our environmental context and future signposts are available for people to read.
Last year, Rev Dr Philip Hughes from the Christian Research Association wrote a review of the environmental context for the Uniting Church and implications for ministry. Earlier this year the MSR also asked Scott Guyatt, who has served the Uniting Church in a variety of roles across Australia, to explore the current reality and potential future for congregations and presbyteries.
Both papers form part of the broader understanding and discernment being undertaken by the MSR - along with engagements with presbyteries, congregations, ordained and lay ministers, and other synods. Read these papers and other MSR reports available in the Resources and Documents section.
