Generate Presbytery Nominations

Share to

7 November, 2019

At our AGM on Sunday the 24 November we will be voting for two people to represent us at Generate Presbytery meetings for the next 3 years (until Dec 2023). A Presbytery is one of the inter-related councils of the church within the Uniting Church in SA who oversee the broader missional and pastoral care goals of the that Presbytery.

What is Generate Presbytery?

Generate oversees 115 congregations who have chosen to join it across the state as well as ministry agents in Chaplaincy and other roles. This includes the largest Uniting Churches in SA and some of the smallest. They have remote congregations and faith communities and congregations in urban cultural hubs, traditional and contemporary worship styles and everything in between, all working together to see every congregation strengthened in their mission to their community. Generate holds to an evangelical orthodox understanding of Scripture and the Basis of Union.

The four key goals of Generate Presbytery are:

  • Seeing people come to a saving faith in Jesus Christ
  • Growing passionate disciples
  • Raising courageous leaders for the future of the church
  • Seeing churches planted and renewed

For more information check out the Generate website.

What is the responsibility of the Generate Presbytery Rep?

  • The Presbytery Reps have the responsibility of representing Coro at Presbytery meetings (Probably up to 3 per year).
  • Read papers emailed to you prior to the meeting and vote on various proposals at the meetings.
  • Communicate back to the church and or/council relevant matters of the Presbytery.
