ON our journey towards the Church's Vision 2020, the Uniting Church in Queensland has committed to numerous projects, as discerned from the Priority Directions reports at the 29th Synod last September.
The following highlights some of our progress.
• Development of a study resource is underway for use in the lead up to the 35th anniversary of the Uniting Church in Australia (22 June).
The development team, led by Director of Pilgrim Learning Community, Neil Thorpe, and me, is focusing on the theme of Paul's vision of the Church as one body (1 Corinthians 12:12-31).
This four-part series aims to start on Pentecost Sunday and will be available at http://ucaqld.com.au/about-us/about-the-uniting-church-in-queensland/together-on-the-way-enriching-community and in the
May edition of Journey.
• Research is being conducted to determine the viability of a digital discipleship resource.
The GrowFaith team are seeking responses to their user needs survey for youth, young adults, parents and leaders.
For more information about GrowFaith and to do the survey visit http://growfaith.ready2air.info.
• Due to the need to upgrade the Synod's servers, we have embarked on a website migration project.
Web Migration Project Officer, Anna Lagos, has joined us as the contact person for the project and is contacting congregational website managers to help assess their online needs and assist in transferring existing websites to our new server.
Please contact Anna at Anna.Lagos@ucaqld.com.au with any questions or for more information.
• The Synod office is reconfiguring in preparation for meeting the Church's Vision for sustainably oriented mission.
The Synod office has seen some staffing changes and physical movement to support greater efficiencies.
The upskilling of staff and creation of new roles is enabling Synod Support Services to improve the resourcing and support for our mission through ministries, relationships and Christian formation.
Please pray for these projects and all the people participating in them as we continue our journey together to realise the
Church's Vision 2020.
