IT is with great excitement and enthusiasm that we share with you the Side by Side study resource this month.
A product stemming from Together on the way, enriching community, the resource has been developed by a team from the Uniting Church in Queensland to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the Uniting Church in Australia.
It is based on the Bible passage from 1 Corinthians 12: 12-28, the theme of the Church as the body of Christ, and hopes to help people in congregations, Presbyteries and agencies across Queensland to consider the importance of relationships and trust in the Church.
Using stories from our own congregations, it demonstrates the value of building strong partnerships between different parts of the Church to work towards mission.
We hope and pray that Bible study groups, ministry agents, worship leaders, community services staff and church members will use the printed study guide as well as the online accompanying study resources available at the Together on the way, enriching community website at http://ucaqld.com.au/about-us/about-the-uniting-church-in-queensland/together-on-the-way-enriching-community
Thank you to those congregations who have welcomed me to their worship services and responded to the invitation to participate in Together on the way, enriching community.
It is exciting to hear about the ways that different parts of the Church across Queensland are interpreting the Vision 2020 and activating their strategic plans for mission.
If your congregation would like to hear more about the Together on the way, enriching community journey and give consideration to how you can contribute to it, please contact Uniting Communications at firstname.lastname@example.org
