Song Survey – LAST CHANCE
The Worship Committee is keen to discover music that members of the congregation find meaningful (both songs we already sing and less familiar music). We also want to know whether there are un-tapped music skills within the congregation.
Please answer this survey to share your thoughts on Music at BUC. It will be open for two weeks (closing 1st July), but there are only 4 questions so just go on in and answer it now!

During NAIDOC Week, 3rd-10th July, the Uniting Church joins with the Uniting Aboriginal and Islander Christian Congress (UAICC) in celebrating Australia’s First Peoples and their place at the heart of our nation and our church. The Walking Together Group will plan and lead worship on 10th July to conclude NAIDOC week. The theme Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up! invites us to work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to amplify our voices and narrow the gap between aspiration and reality, good intent and outcome.
