The Uniting Councils have been revamped as an important contributor to the Uniting for A Common Good strategy of the Uniting Church NSW/ACT. Included here is a summary of the Councils’ role, and the types of people we are seeking to become active contributors.
Uniting is responsible for the social justice, community services and chaplaincy work of the Uniting Church in the Synod of NSW & ACT. Uniting Councils help ensure interconnectedness – especially between the Synod, the presbyteries and congregations – in the way the Church serves and empowers communities. They help to enable the best services and support for those in need in NSW and the ACT.
Operating in a community engagement capacity within Uniting, the Councils have a broad remit. Each Council develops its own programs and activities, relating closely to their local needs, and they aim to involve, engage, develop and have an impact. Activities your local Council may be involved in are listed below.
The Uniting Councils are responsible in their geographical boundaries for administering the Uniting Innovative Community Grant Fund.
Appointed by and reporting to the Uniting Board, the Councils are supported by the Uniting Director of Strategic Engagement and an Administrator. They also work closely with the Community Development Coordinators. This structure is shown below.
There are eight Uniting Councils in NSW and the ACT.
Applications for membership will be considered against selection criteria to achieve the best balance of skills and expertise in each Uniting Council. Recruitment will be undertaken by each Council and applicants will be interviewed by the relevant Council Chair.
Members may come from both the Uniting Church and the broader community so as to provide diversity and balance in the team.
All eligible candidates must successfully pass a Criminal Record Check and a Working with Children check.
Given the nature and responsibilities of the Councils, candidates for appointment must have:
