About Us

 

Welcome to the Christ and Cultures Gathering

We are a group of men and women from different cultural backgrounds. We have a deep passion and commitment to the Uniting Church in Australia and its declaration of being a multi/cross cultural church. We want to explore what it means to be the Uniting Church in the twenty-first century through the lens of a diversity of cultural perspectives.  We wish to encourage the release of a confident and well informed voice from a wide range of communities.

The Christ and Cultures Gathering does not want to be bound by the institutional structures of the church. We are not a committee of a presbytery, synod or an Assembly. We want to find a new way of finding and expressing our voice. We welcome conversation and the exchange of ideas and practice with others.

There is no formal membership; there are no subscriptions: We are a voluntary association of friends with a common commitment to Christ who enjoy each other’s journey of faith. we invite you to be a fellow disciple in our company.

The initiative for this Gathering has lain with Liva Tukutama, John Jegasothy, Gaby Kobrossi, Levon Kardashian, Kisoo Jang, Stella Kim, Seforosa Carroll and Clive Pearson.
