Who We Are
We are an evangelical Christian community located in Noarlunga Downs, in the south of Adelaide, South Australia. We believe that the gospel of Jesus Christ changes lives and we are His hands and feet in the world.
What We Believe
Consistent with our Uniting Church identity, ConneXions holds to a reformed, evangelical and historically orthodox view of the Christian faith. The confessional substance of our beliefs can be found in the Basis of Union.
Most importantly, we believe that:
- God is Father, Son and Holy Spirit one God, known in three persons, and is defined by the dynamic and loving interaction between those three persons. God is Love. (1 John 4:8)
- The Bible, including both the Old and New Testaments, is the inspired Word of God.
- On the Cross Jesus made an all-sufficient sacrifice for the sins of the world, and that when we confess him as Lord and believe God raised him from the dead, we are saved from eternal judgement and receive the promise of eternal life (new life) in him. (Romans 10:9)
- The church is the Priesthood of all believers (1 Peter 2:9), where every member of the church has gifts given by the Holy Spirit and for which there is a corresponding service.
- The church, empowered by the Holy Spirit, has an Acts 1:8 mandate and a Matthew 28 commission to witness to Jesus and go and make disciples of all the world.
ConneXions Uniting Church is Elder governed and lead by a ordained minister.
We believe that God calls, and the Holy Spirit equips both women and men to lead across all facets of church life.
Elders are elected by the congregation and are responsible with the Lead Minister for setting and monitoring the strategic direction of the church and providing spiritual oversight. There are currently six elected Elders.
The primary role of our Lead minister is to equip the people of God for the work and privilege of ministry.
Our church is run by volunteer staff and is led by our Lead Minister, Rev Will Hall. He commenced in this role in 2016.
The Uniting Church
Connexions Uniting Church is a congregation of the Uniting Church in Australia (UCA). The UCA was formed in 1977 by the coming together of the Presbyterian, Methodist and Congregational churches. The missional and ecumenical vision of the UCA is beautifully articulated in the Basis of Union, a brief document you can read here:
The UCA has a reformed and evangelical theological heritage, with John Wesleys sermons and the Westminster Confession amongst its confessional documents.
The UCA is a uniquely Australian church with more than 2000 congregations, social welfare agencies and iconic ministries like Frontier Services, which serves remote and rural families and indigenous people. You can find out more about the UCA here:
