Our Vision & Mission Statement

Blackwood Uniting Church is called by God to be an inclusive Christian community committed to justice, learning, service and care.

Therefore in all aspects of our life we will:

  • Provide a welcoming environment for all people.
  • Strive for justice and reconciliation within the whole creation.
  • Continue to grow in our relationship with God through worship and faith development.
  • Be actively involved in service and care for each other, the local community and the wider world.

Therefore as a church we will:

  • Welcome all people into our fellowship, not just with words but through our structures, our interest in them, our programmes and by encouraging them to use their gifts and time for the life of this community and its goals.
  • Work for justice and reconciliation within the church, the community and beyond through personal involvement, prayer and specific programmes.
  • Provide a variety of worship experiences which will enable people to relate to God in a way that is meaningful to them.
  • Establish ways for people to engage in faith development that equips them to live as followers of Jesus in the twenty-first century.
  • Seek to actively participate as the whole people of God and as individuals in serving and caring for each other within the church, within the community and within all of God’s creation. This means continuing to support the established Community Programme as well as being involved beyond the walls of the church.
