Saltbush as a Vision

Saltbush is part of the Uniting Church in Australia.

Saltbush – Uniting the Scattered Community, seeks to encourage and connect Uniting Christian communities,  irrespective of size or location. Saltbush seeks to enable us as a broad church to embrace the reality of being Christian community in the 21st. century and to affirm diverse ways for people across the land to belong; both to gather and be in mission together. Saltbush seeks to work with individuals and Christian communities who are willing to confront traditions and habits of the past to shape new intentional gatherings for the present future!

You can attend...

Saltbush @ Worship
People from across the state and beyond for worship as Christian community. This is not streamed, one way or impersonal, but continues to build upon our belief in the missional relationship. Saltbush @ Worship takes place on different days/nights and is open to all.
