Uniting Church SA Relief Fund – Bushfire Relief
The UCSA Bushfire Relief Fund has been set up with the specific purpose of supporting local congregations as they serve people in their fire-affected communities in appropriate ways. This may be through the provision of chaplaincy, extra pastoral support, special events to assist in recovery or practical help in a myriad of ways.

Disaster & Recovery Chaplaincy update
In South Australia a multifaith network of chaplains has been established to assist people who have been affected by disasters and major emergencies within their communities. The Uniting Church coordinates this network known as Disaster and Recovery Ministries across the state, operating under a Memorandum of Understanding with the SA Government and in partnership with other participating organisations. While other services and groups will aid in taking care of people’s physical and emotional needs, chaplaincy seeks to support people’s spiritual and pastoral needs.
Two significant recent developments with regards to the Kangaroo Island bushfires are:
a Recovery Centre has now been set up at Parndana Community Health Centre and outreach teams are just beginning to visit many affected people across the Island. Rev Dr Phil Marshall will be inducted as the Recovery Liaison Minister – Kangaroo Island at a date to be advised
Training for new chaplains will take place on 26 – 27 March, 9:30am – 4:30pm at Seacliff Uniting Church. Refresher training for those who have done the course before but need to refresh their skills to maintain their accreditation will happen on the second day of training (Friday 27 March). Registrations will be open for this soon.
For more information about Disaster & Recovery Ministries SA, or the abovementioned courses, please contact Wendy Perkins on 0408 896 220 or [wperkins@sa.uca.org.au].
Event Highlights
Intercultural Lunch Conversation
gRACE & RACE with Rev Swee An Koh
How might we have a life-giving, grace-ful and hope-ful conversation on racism, which is not a comfortable topic to discuss? How can we address and challenge “structural racism” without feelings of fear or guilt, in order to build up a just and beloved intercultural community?
Wednesday 5 February 2020, 12:00pm Uniting College for Leadership and Theology All welcome! Free lunch will be provided. RSVP to Bev on 08 8236 4243 or [bfreeman@sa.uca.org.au] for catering purposes.
