Public witness on key issues

Public Witness

The Brunswick UC banner is now well known at rallies and other forms of public action for social change. We attend the Palm Sunday Rally, refugee and climate action rallies. We organise public discussion forums before elections and on critical social issues. A number of our members also participate in non violent direct action and civil disobedience through the Love Makes a Way movement.

We are proud to be a Sanctuary church as part of the Australian Churches Refugee Taskforce.
