• 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.
Remember 19th May a meeting after church for the congregation to make a decision regarding which presbytery we will join.
Remember 28th April a meeting after church to present information regarding forming a new presbytery and a date for the congregation to make a decision.
