15th Triennial Assembly Meeting

The 15th Triennial Assembly Meeting opened on Sunday 8 July in Melbourne, and Dr Deidre Palmer was installed as President of the Uniting Church in Australia.

Members of the meeting have already discussed some proposals on marriage;  heard from the National Task Group, which is the body appointed by the Uniting Church to respond to the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse; discussed sovereignty for Australia’s First Peoples; and have adopted a statement that commits the Uniting Church to repudiate all teaching and theologies that justify domestic violence.

Liturgy and video resources from the installation of Dr Deidre Palmer are now available for use in congregations. Click here to access them.
