The love of God is not restricted by international boundaries and the mission of the Uniting Church extends beyond our national borders. Our international partner churches are best placed to meet the needs of their communities who may be struggling with poverty and lack of access to basic services like healthcare and education.
The International Partnerships and Development Commission supports a number of projects run by some of our international partner churches:
As a requirement of the Australian Charities and Not for Profit Commission (ACNC), all of our projects need to meet their External Conduct Standards. In fact, any congregation making donations that have an international benefit must comply the External Conduct Standards. To assist with this we request congregations to declare any donations made to international charities each financial year.
During COVID-19, all our partners have had to adapt to the crisis to promote health advice, support access to PPE and basic sanitation and hygiene, plus support access to emergency food supplies due to broken supply lines.
If you have any inquiries about the ACNC requirements or if you wish to donate or hear more about any of our international partner projects please contact the Social Justice Unit:
