Welcome to the Uniting Church in Australia Riverina Presbytery

Meet our ministers
Rev Matthew Stuart, Rev Yvonne Ghavalas, Rev Nigel Hawken, Rev Keith Robinson Rev Jannice McWhinney and Rev John McKane

During this time of rapid and frequent change in the way we live our lives our new Home Page will try to bring you some new ways of worship and other relevant information.

These are some links to other sites where you can find on-line worship, liturgies, worship services and study groups.  The list will change as we adapt to our current, very different, ways of sharing without gathering together face to face.

Year ‘A’ Lectionary Readings
for the next few weeks

AFTER PENTECOST A period of time that varies in length depending on whether Easter is early or late. In this period, the Church recalls its faith in the Holy Trinity. It seeks to relate its faith as a people of God to Christ’s mission in the world. It commences with Trinity Sunday (7th June 2020) and concludes with the feast of Christ the King (22nd Nov 2020).

The Lectionary colours, while not referred to a lot in the UCA are, I think, interesting. If you want to know more about them this site is of interest. Liturgical Colours
