The 39th annual meeting of the Synod of Western Australia held in September established a new, non-geographic Uniting Aboriginal and Islander Christian Congress Presbytery within the bounds of the Synod of Western Australia. Therefore, the Synod of Western Australia contains two presbyteries, the yet to be named Congress WA Presbytery and the remainder of the Presbytery of Western Australia, whose name is no longer appropriate.
We’re tapping into the creativity of the Uniting Church WA community and seeking suggestions to rename the Presbytery of Western Australia.
Please share the significance or background of your suggested name.
Email your suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org or post to Presbytery of Western Australia Renaming, GPO Box M952, Perth WA 6843 by Friday 5 February, 2016. You can also submit online at http://unitingchurchwa.org.au/administration/help-re-name-thepresbytery-of-wa.
Based on submissions, a short list of names and recommendations will be presented at the next Presbytery meeting in May.
