Our Heartbeat

History
In 1984, Gordon Uniting Church established its "Leisure and Learning classes". These have been a significant part of what we do in the community.
In 2014, we're moving with the times and we want to provide more flexibility and more opportunities for people in our local community to join in our programs, groups and classes.

Future
Our vision is that the Gordon area will have a centre that is viewed as a "community centre".
It will provide space for activities for all ages, places to sit and meet other people without expectations of participation, belief or commitment.

The renaming of "Leisure and Learning" as the "Uniting Gordon Community Centre", reflects this broader vision and scope that we are moving towards.

We are not there yet!
The Uniting Gordon Community Centre is led by a voluntary Board and supported by a fantastic team of volunteers.
It is an independent, not for profit organisation, supported financially by Gordon Uniting Church.
We encourage people who want to participate and contribute to contact us.

About the Uniting Church

The Uniting Church is a multicultural church, striving to treat people on an equal basis and seeking to give a voice to the poor, outcast and needy. Much of its role is to stand alongside the individual, inside and outside the church. Its congregations nurture spiritual, social and educational growth. Lay people are encouraged in leadership roles.

The Uniting Church's commitment to love of God and neighbour has sometimes drawn it into controversial situations. It has long taken a role in the political arena, encouraging moral, social and ethical integrity. The Uniting Church has been at the forefront of Aboriginal rights issues including the Native Title debate and reconciliation.

It has taken a stand on environmental issues, and supports the equality and dignity of marginalised people such as ethnic minorities, disabled people and homosexual people.
