Welcome to the Ringwood Uniting Church Web Site.
Statement of Purpose for the congregation:
The people of the Uniting Church (Ringwood) are called into God’s mission, contributing in the tradition of Jesus to known and unknown neighbours’ lives, in the Spirit of God’s compassion, justice and liberating reconciliation.
Ringwood Uniting Church understands mission as cultivating the imagination of the community to see God at work in the world and join in being the Good News. We look to be shaped by scripture, worship and action to grow spiritually, in theological understanding and the risky practices of being the body of Christ.
With a strong focus on social justice and outreach, members of Ringwood Uniting Church seek to address needs in our wider community. We offer support to refugee and asylum seekers, families of children with a disability, support emergency food relief at EACH, and partner with broader ‘Uniting’ agencies in early childhood education and homeless services. When not restricted by global pandemics we offer a range of activities from bike riding, walking, a playgroup, children’s and youth groups, through to bible study groups, a friendship centre and faith discussion.
In 2017 our congregation engaged in a #Immerse program, designed to help us engage in our mission objectives. The mission objectives that focus our life together include:
Practising Faith Sharing
Practising Community Engagement and,
Practising Partnership in Mission.
