Who are we?
St Andrew’s Congregation is part of South Turramurra Uniting Church.
Mission Statement: Reflecting God’s love, growing in faith and engaging with the community.
Reflecting God’s love:
We love because God first loved us (1 John 4:19).
We believe that all people are made in the image of God. (Gen 1:26-27)
We seek to reflect God’s love through our worship of God, by loving all people unconditionally and by living out Christ’s values of inclusiveness, forgiveness, welcome and care for all.
We acknowledge that we do not always live up to these values.
Growing in faith:
We believe in Jesus Christ our Saviour.
We gather together to nourish and sustain our faith through worship, prayer, Bible study, education, and encouragement of one another, so that we might grow in the knowledge and grace of Christ. (2 Peter 3:18)
Engaging in community:
We are called to be part of God’s mission of reconciliation and renewal of the world (2 Cor 5:18-20). This means engaging with our local community, caring for those around us and beyond, working towards a world where God’s kingdom of justice, love and peace will reign.
We seek to share this good news of God’s kingdom coming, through worship, witness and service.
As part of the Uniting Church in Australia we adhere to the Basis of Union.
