About the assembly

Monday, 28 May 2012

The Triennial Assembly is the peak decision-making authority of the Uniting Church. Assembly Members gather over six days to discuss and deliberate on the direction of the Church.

Every three years some 265 Church members elected by Synods and Presbyteries meet for six days to discuss and deliberate on the direction of our Church.

The business of the Assembly meeting consists of reports from the Assembly agencies and working groups; business referred by the Assembly Standing Committee; and proposals referred by Synods and Presbyteries. A Business Committee manages the scheduling of discussion through the Assembly.

The President chairs the Assembly meeting which operates on a consensus model of decision-making.

The 13th Triennial Assembly takes place from 15-21 July 2012 at the Grand Chancellor Hotel in Adelaide, South Australia.
