The Uniting Church stands alongside those at the fringe of society, the poor, the marginalised and the oppressed.
At it’s heart is a church committed to justice and reconciliation.
What is the Social Justice Commission?
The Social Justice Commission is appointed by the Synod to work for reconciliation, justice and peace, and involves the Church in social and national affairs.
The Board does this in practical ways by identifying issues, undertaking research, providing position papers, developing resources, organising seminars and advocacy work.
The Social Justice Commission has identified three focus areas : Human Rights, Environment and Peace Making.
