Salty Resources

These resources are brought to you as part of Saltbush – Uniting the Scattered Community. The Uniting Church Synod of NSW & ACT oversees this work as an encouragement to all rural Christian communities and their leaders, irrespective of size or location.


Ruminations - Spring-Summer 2022 - Front Cover

Ruminations tells stories of scattered Uniting Christian communities and the people who give them life.  Ruminations seeks to bring genuine theology and Biblical reflection for our contemporary life and world.

The latest edition of Ruminations has the theme of Land. As a challenge, I commend to your thinking, consideration of your own relationship to land and where your own slice of real-estate sits as part of the land on which we live.

Talking About Salt

Are we pretending to be something that we are not! Are we salty, tasty, flavoursome and healing or are we not what we say or think we are! Are we salt!?

These are difficult questions and there are challenging conversations to be had for Christian communities who want to be as salt within the communities in which we find ourselves. And so, you are invited to begin… Talking about Salt!

Intentional Christian Communities

Intentional Christian Community

Welcome to this opportunity to think about the challenge of being intentional in how we gather as the Christian community.

Dive into any part of the Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke & John) and you will find Jesus intentionally going about his ministry. At times it looks like chaos and no doubt it was, but at every step Jesus acts with intention.


What is Saltbush? What shapes us and what does it mean to belong to Saltbush?

This brochure will tell you more about the Saltbush team and where to begin and how to use Saltbush.

The Great Unravelling

The Saltbush team have prepared six conversations as part of our reading of the book:

Joining God in the Great Unravelling by Alan J. Roxburgh.

However, these conversations are not a study guide to the book, but an invitation to open ourselves to deeply consider who and how we, the church, our christian communities, are participating in the ways of God beyond ourselves.
