The groups associated below are the Uniting Church’s own groups formed for giving outreach to the community.
Lent Event is UnitingWorld’s call to individuals and churches to be personally changed by God’s work in the world, by meeting people across the Pacific, Asia and Africa who are building peace, creating justice, offering hope and bringing new life.
Since 2009, Lent Event has raised over 3 million dollars for people living in Zimbabwe, India, Papua New Guinea, Vanuatu, South Sudan, Fiji and many others through long-term partnerships with the Uniting Church in Australia. Together we train Christian leaders for the growing global church, create peace-building programs, offer clean water and sanitation, and provide education.
In 2019, our focus is on saving lives through health education, preventing violence against children and raising up new leaders. Alongside our partner church in Timor Leste, Southeast Asia’s poorest nation, we’ll continue Lent Event’s great tradition of bringing people together to work for real change.
