• The Assembly of the Uniting Church allows congregations the right to choose whether to allow same gender marriages in their churches. The council recommends that Naracoorte Uniting Church do not allow same gender marriages in our church facilities. This decision will come to the next congregational meeting (perhaps the AGM) for ratification.
The Church Council wish to remind the congregation that with the lead up to Easter, our Community Chest cupboard needs to be 'stocked up' with food items to help people in the community that struggle. Among items that will help, are long life milk, cereal, canned fruit or vegetables, sugar, pasta and pasta sauces.
