An exploration of and training for presiding at the sacrament of Communion as celebrated by the Uniting Church in Australia.

About the Course

This course will be presented through a mixed-mode of three Wednesday evenings via Zoom and one full-day face-to-face training day (to be determined in discussion with participants)

The face-to-face training day must be attended to complete this course.

This course is for:

  • Anyone interested in learning about communion in the Uniting Church;
  • Elders/leaders sharing the distribution of communion when the presider is in another place eg via Zoom;
  • Lay presiders looking for a refresher course;
  • People exploring the idea of lay presidency and those already authorised by the Pastoral Relations Committee as part of their recognition.
  • It is also an ideal opportunity for a small group, faith community, bible study group, or congregation to spend time exploring the sacraments together.
