Uniting Church SA Bushfire Relief

Fire Clouds Financial donations to help with recovery following the recent bushfires in our State can be made through the Uniting Church Synod of South Australia.

Funds given through Synod will be available to help congregations support those affected in their local community through the provision of chaplaincy, extra pastoral support, and special events to assist in recovery or practical help in a myriad of ways. Our donations will assist congregations in the affected areas to actively demonstrate God's compassion, comfort and hope to people who have experienced distress as a result of these disastrous fires.

During January, we ran a special retiring offering for Synod’s bushfire relief fund. If you would still like to make a donation, you can contact the Synod office by telephone on 8236 4204, or you can make a donation on their secure online page at http://sa.uca.org.au/pastoral-relations/uniting-church-sa-relief-fund. If you require any assistance in making your donation, please contact the Scots Church Office. 

The Uniting Church is responsible for the Ecumenical Disaster and Recovery Ministries in South Australia. The church trains and deploys a team of chaplains (lay and ordained from all denominations) who provide pastoral and spiritual support to the broader community in times of disaster such as these bushfires. At the invitation of the SA Government these chaplains are called to exercise important ministry in Emergency Relief and Recovery Centres and through Impact Assessment Teams visiting affected people in their homes. Our teams have been active in such Centres and there will be ongoing ministry in the weeks and even months to come. 

The Moderator, Dr Deidre Palmer, wrote:

In this time of deep distress for many people in our South Australian community, we have also witnessed enormous courage and selfless service particularly from the CFS, other emergency workers and volunteers. We have been encouraged by stories of people's kindness and generosity to one another. We pray God will continue to bring comfort and strength to those affected.
