Growing in Faith

Daring to question and to act

Jesus questioned traditional religious practices as well as the oppressive power and religion of the Roman empire. He proclaimed a life-giving message of love.

As we grow as Christians, we need to question earlier childish understandings of faith that aren’t much use to us personally or to our society.

The Uniting Church thinks of itself as a Pilgrim Church which is on the move and which is open to new experiences in the world.

On this page we hope to give you resources that will help you in your own growth and questioning.

Our Library

We have an extensive library - some 400 titles - of books available for loan, located in the Brindabella Room. As it incorporates the library of the former Centre for Progressive Religious Thought, there is a large number of books by writers offering different perspectives; however that is only part of the holdings. You can browse the following catalogues:

You can come and browse - and borrow - on Friday mornings when Coffee 'n' Chat is on, after morning services, or after other in person events such as Gathering@6. For other times, contact office.wvuc@gmail.com to find out if the premises are open and the library able to be accessed at the time you wish to drop in.
