What is New & Renewing Ministry

We live in times of great change and the Uniting Church continues to adapt in order to bring life in all its fullness as promised by Christ. Indeed, one of the Synod’s strategic priorities is “inspiring and enabling more new contextual Christian communities to be born, and to renew existing ones to be more faithful and missional”.

Throughout Victoria and Tasmania many communities have responded to the call of living out the Gospel in fresh ways, with the number of new communities now totalling about 50.

The greatest opportunity for further renewal may lie within the vast missional activities that already operate within the church.


Our New Ways video series showcases two examples of churches attempting new or renewed ways of being, in the Presbytery of Port Phillip West.  We hope these short stories inspire you to think about the possibilities within the contexts that God has located you.
