A crowded room of voting members of the Assembly of the Uniting Church in Australia and other church leaders and lay people on Tuesday 17 July sat in hushed darkness to view video footage of the five nominees for the church's President-elect.
Rev. Christine Bayliss Kelly and Bradon French from the Synod of NSW/ACT took to the stage on Day Three of Assembly with humour and infectious energy to report on plans for the 2014 National Christian Youth Convention (NCYC).
In his retiring President’s Report to the Uniting Church’s 13th Assembly, the Rev. Alistair Macrae said that along with the worldwide Christian Church the Uniting Church was in a time of fundamental transition, challenges and opportunities.
