What is the UMN?

Members from nineteen Uniting Church congregations meet about four times a year at different participating churches around Adelaide encouraging each other in ministry and mission, sharing resources and providing mutual support.

The participating churches are all of a similar size in their communities and located in prominent shopping precincts. The Urban Mission Network provides an opportunity to support each other and education on topics that will help us grow. It is important to find out what the other congregations are doing and offers the chance to share resources. It is organised to replace presbytery’s.

The Urban Mission Network Bulletin would like to highlight the following events:

Social Justice forums with Rev Elenie Poulos, National Director Uniting Justice Australia, at Morialta on Sunday 18th April and Wednesday 21st April

Art Exhibition at Blackwood 15th – 18th April

Gretta Vosper’s evening in Adelaide on Wednesday 20th April as part of her national tour

Informal gathering for paid Administrators hosted by Rev Alan Biglow and Ms Sharyn Dobroszczyk on Tuesday 23rd March, 10.30 am – 11.30 am, at Enfield UCA.

The purpose of this first get together is to provide an informal meeting place for conversations about establishing networks of mutual support where office and other resources can be shared with each other.

Planning is in the pipeline for these events

Get together for those congregations who have heritage listed properties at Wesley Kent Town in the second half of the year

Grant writing workshop in collaboration with the Community Outreach Mission Network in June

Get together for Chairs and Secretaries of Congregations and Church Councils in July.The Urban Mission Network Bulletin would like to highlight the following events:
