Just over one year ago, in February 2015, a number of representatives from Presbyteries came together to reflect and converse on the future of our Church. Consistently, participants were drawn to the ‘Parable of the Yeast’ as a helpful description of the church’s future focus.

Since then, this conversation has continued and together, Uniting Mission and Education and Uniting have wrestled with the best contribution they can make to the church’s future mission. How can we best resource the Church’s desire to be the ‘yeast, salt and light’? How can we equip the Church to carefully consider and explore their community engagement?

We need to once again become yeast equipped to permeate the dough around us, and ensure we haven’t lost our soul and our saltiness. We need to start a conversation that now cuts across our structures in a way we never have before, to ensure our shared purpose and impact on the world continues for this generation and those to come.
