At the July Assembly Meeting 2018 the Uniting Church reached a decision to honour the diversity of Christian belief among our members, by allowing two equal and distinct statements of belief on marriage, one being man and women and the other person and person.
This decision allows ministers and celebrants in the Uniting Church the freedom to conduct or to refuse to conduct same-gender marriages. (For the full pastoral statement please click here)
As a result Star St Uniting Church upheld this decision further and want to celebrate that we are now available to same Sex Marriage ceremonies!
We celebrated this decision at our church on Thursday 25 October 2018.
We had GALSWA performing some of their tunes and speakers including Chris Bedding and Ian Tozer.
Please join us in celebrating this event!

Now that we have a clearer understanding of what direction we are headed w need to flesh out the details of what this will practically look like.
Ephesians 5:15–16 says, “Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity”. Considered planning helps us to discern what the will of God might be for this church.

The first Planning Day was held on Saturday 7 April with 44 people participating. After a morning of table group the top four options for Star Street’s mission and vision were identified as:
1. Reinventing our church
2. Collaboration with other churches and organisations
3. Birth a new faith community
4. Develop a community hub at our church

Kids Camp Out or KCO is a 24 hour, overnight camp aimed at our younger congregation members from Year 2 – Year 7. KCO is a chance to meet other Church groups as we bring Campers and Junior Leaders (Year 8 – Year 12) to experience a wider church community. The program incorporates shared meals, worship, sport, art and craft activities. Day visitors are welcome to join in the fun.
The 2018 theme was Wilderness and was held from the 10 – 11 March with a Friday program for the Junior Leaders on 9 March, at Advent Park in Maida Vale.
“What do cheerleaders, waterholes, and evaporative air-conditioners have in common?
They could be models of being Church in the 21st century!”
Keen to find out what was discussed at Summer Spirit? The best way is to talk to the congregation members that attended. But in the mean time you can read this article from Revive.
