Stay and Play

Was held on Sunday 3 December following worship.  Folk hung around for lunch (sausage sizzle) provided, played games, chatted, took part in craft and other activities.   At Hobart North part of how we care for one another is getting to know each other in informal intergenerational settings, enjoying each other’s company.  We aim to hold these days once every 2 or 3 months.

Mission and Identity

uniting community was adopted by the church in late 2012, not only as a ‘mission statement’, but also an ‘identity statement’.  It is how we see our calling as a Christian church. nurturing spirit, sharing hospitality, practising faith are the key elements in how we want to go about our calling.  (The lower case letters are deliberate, and not merely the result of bad grammar!  They remind us that ‘uniting’ is a verb as well as naming us as part of the Uniting Church in Australia: ‘uniting is both who we are and what we want to do.)

Forming

Hobart North UCA was formed in 2006 from New Town Moonah and North Hobart congregations.  It is a vibrant and lively community of faith which seeks to encourage its people in Christian worship and practice.  Members are involved in a wide variety of activities and ministries, both as part of the Sunday gatherings and in living out their faith the rest of the week.
