Rural Communities

The Gordon Uniting Church (GUC) has a long history of engagement with rural communities. Previously, GUC supported the Flying Padre in Broken Hill and painting community halls across the state. Pymble Uniting Church (PUC) has also been working in rural areas for a number of years. The “Make a Difference Out West” project has seen work done in Griffith, Hillston and Enngonia as well as visits to rural areas and opportunities for congregational members to be involved in multiple ways.

Our partnership with Julie Greig, Rural Chaplain with the Rural Ministry Unit and growing awareness of other existing regional engagements including those of the local Uniting Church congregations and schools has drawn us into a bigger vision.
