New Uniting Church Assembly website launched

The Uniting Church National Assembly has launched a new and improved website (www.assembly.uca.org.au) together with new sites for most Assembly agencies and working groups,.

“The sites have been rebuilt into a content management system that allows each of the Assembly agencies and working groups to easily maintain their sites and add and delete content so our sites are now offering fresh information,” said Assembly Senior Communications Officer Penelope Monger.

The Assembly website offers key information on the Uniting Church’s core doctrine, worship practices, historic documents like the Basis of Union and the Statement to the Nation and policy documents including the Regulations and Constitution.

“The Assembly is rich in the resources we produce to nourish the life of the church,” said Ms Monger.

The Assembly website also posts news stories about highlights in the work of the Assembly, agencies and working groups, as well as statements made by the President and press releases.

The new Assembly website is also easier to use. “The old site was quite difficult to navigate through. The new site makes it very clear where you are at all times and it has a sharp new design,” she said.

Ms Monger said the main benefit of having an online presence from the National Council is that people all over Australia have access to the same information at the same time.

“People can get a sense of what’s happening in the church beyond their own synod, and find out what’s happening in terms of policy and the outcomes of the Assembly Standing Committee.

“It offers immediate updates on the important developments that affect church members but that might otherwise take a while to filter down through the synods and other avenues.”
