During the pandemic the Synod has moved to provide the latest information for Ministers, Ministry agents, Congregations and Presbyteries.

On the Synod COVID-19 Hub you will find the latest information and guidance, along with ministry resources and a comprehensive list of Congregations offering online worship.

This hub is updated regularly, so bookmark it and return to the site often.

We also recommend during this time, if you haven't already, to sign up for the regular Weekly Insights email that will keep you up to date with information from around the Uniting Church. You can sign up to this weekly email here.

All Presbyteries and Congregations are encouraged to continuously assess their operations and activities against the current advice contained within the public orders from the NSW and ACT Government Health Departments.

Should a Presbytery or Congregation determine that it can continue a community service/activity safely and in accordance with regulatory requirements (including guidance concerning, personal hygiene, social distancing and control of mass gatherings) the following is required:

  • Advise your Presbytery of the activity to help them assess in light of the pandemic
  • For more specific advice or assistance contact the Synod Covid-19 Hotline - 02 8267 4300
  • If you have specific enquiries email and the team with direct your enquiry to the relevant area of Synod.
