Take the lead in our uniquely Australian Church.
Young adults in the Uniting Church in Australia
LEAD is an opportunity to explore what it means to be capable and confident leaders in a world embracing diversity and difference.
LEAD is a safe space for you to come as you are, meet some new people and share your stories, hopes and dreams for the Uniting Church.
LEAD will equip you with practical leadership tools and give you the space to immediately put your new skills into practice.
How? By working as a team to lead worship, bible studies and facilitate group discussions about topics YOU think are important to the life of the Church.
