Media Release: Kenthurst Uniting Church in the media

The Uniting Church in Australia, Synod of NSW and the ACT is called by God to be a fellowship of reconciliation, living God’s love and acting for the common good to build a just and compassionate community.

Ecumenism – the promotion of unity among all Christian churches - is a vital aspect to our life and witness. Throughout our Congregations we make a commitment to work together with other churches and other faiths, as an Australian church, we work to build relationships and partnerships with churches of various denominations across Asia and the Pacific.

An extension of this ecumenical hospitality is offered in the rental of its properties and Kenthurst Uniting Church offers its premises to a variety of church and community groups and will continue to do so.

Local rental arrangements in the Uniting Church are a matter for individual church councils as is the case with Kenthurst Uniting Church and its continued arrangement with the Truth of Jesus Christ Church.

That said, the Uniting Church welcomes all people regardless of gender or sexuality and has a long tradition of positive engagement with other churches, including several who hold very different views to our own.

Encouraging others to draw inspiration from the life of Jesus Christ will always be central to our mission. We would encourage prayerful reflection by those who bring into question the dignity of others.

The Moderator Rev. Simon Hansford
