The Uniting Church in Australia has had a long engagement with questions of sexuality in relation to discipleship, faith, leadership and, most recently, marriage. The material on this page, from UCA and other sources, is offered to resource the church in its ongoing discussion and discernment.

31st October, 2018 conversation

In July 2018, the 15th national Assembly of the Uniting Church in Australia decided to support two views about marriage – one retaining the definition of marriage being between and a man and a woman, the other using a gender-neutral definition of the couple to allow for same-gender marriage. On 31 October 2018, South Moreton Presbytery of the UCA held an afternoon event called, “Let’s have a theological conversation about marriage,” designed to bring each of those two views of marriage into dialogue. Two scholars with different views offered their response to key questions about the position they hold, and considered what it meant for them to be in a church which affirmed both positions. The videos and texts from this event are offered here as a further resource for the church on this journey towards understanding and discernment.
