Minister of the Word

We, the congregation at Leichhardt Uniting Church, are seeking an ordained person to help us keep the faith, do justice and build community.

About Us

We are a proud member of the Uniting Church in Australia in the Presbytery of Sydney.  We are doing our best to answer the question “what does it mean to follow Jesus?” in our personal, communal and public lives. We hold to Creedal Trinitarian theology with a high Christology. We are politically engaged, passionate about social justice, and enthusiastic about theological engagement that is true to the life, death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.

About You in this Role

  • We will look to you as a theological mentor; playing a major role in preaching, teaching, and Biblical discourse as well as Discipleship formation of our congregation members.

  • Through supporting our mission activities and worship, you will help us share the Good News with the world, that God loves us without exception and without favour.

  • You will be a strong and loving advocate for our LGBTIQ siblings.

  • You will share our passion for university ministry, which has brought us a large cohort of young adults. You will act as a titular chaplain to the University of Sydney, just down the road, and to young adults living in community in Epworth House.

  • You will be excited about our ambitious partnership with Uniting (UnitingCare) to redevelop properties in our local area for the purpose of mission.

  • You will be a pastor and nurture us as we walk the road of discipleship by drawing on: your strong personal relationship with Jesus Christ, your passion for the countercultural call of the gospel and the politics of Jesus, and your reverence for the Bible as our holy text.

  • You will join us in continually discerning the Spirit’s call for us, for our community and for the world.

  • You are or will be able to be ordained within the Uniting Church in Australia (e.g. ordained in another denomination, and willing to go through the UCA process to 'transfer').
