Gisborne Uniting Church, 23 Brantome Street, Gisborne
have the agencies of the churches' community services outgrown their faith-based parents?
- Dog wagging the tail or tail wagging the dog?
Bronwyn Pike is the CEO of "Uniting", the umbrella body for the welfare and community service organisations of the Uniting church. She has been a member of the Victorian Parliament, holding portfolios in education, health, aged care and housing. When she began her role in Uniting in 2019, she faced the issue of how these many organisations relate to the Church, their "parent". Congregations of the UCA are decreasing in size and in number, so is the dog wagging the tail or the tail wagging the dog?
Bronwyn addressed an issue not just facing the Uniting Church. It is a question of the relationship of faith based communities and their related community service agencies.
See our Resources page to watch a video of Bronwyn's lecture.
The Macedon Ranges Partnership continues to explore new ways or fresh expressions of being missional Churches.
