This year, the Uniting Board contributed to the development of the Future Directions strategy for the NSW.ACT Synod of the Uniting Church, approved in April 2021.


In FY22, we’ll be aligning Uniting’s 10-year strategy of prioritising the people and communities in greatest need, with the Church’s new strategic direction.

The Uniting Church is renewing itself as a contemporary, courageous and growing church. 

The Future Directions strategy reaffirms the Synod’s direction-setting commitments: 


  • A commitment to rural and regional ministry 


  • A commitment to ministry with people in the first third of their lives


  • A commitment to walking together with First Peoples and to the covenant with Congress 


  • An ongoing and active commitment to the stewardship of the earth 


  • An ongoing commitment to working with presbyteries to organise ourselves to promote growth within and through our congregations
