Join our community at HomeFaith for videos, fun activities and support for the young at heart. At HomeFaith we focus on the needs of young people and families in country and regional NSW/Act to connect with one another and explore their faith. Please read on to find out more about us.
HomeFaith is an initiative of the Eastern Region of the Riverina Presbytery of the Uniting Church in Australia. What a mouthful that is! We hope to keep things simpler, and so please just call us ‘HomeFaith’.
This is a very new project and is in some ways quite unique. There are many ‘church’ resources on the Internet. However they are mostly aimed at church leaders or are worship services for once only use by regular church attendees. But many people, particularly younger families in country/regional areas, are looking for something different. HomeFaith was created for these people. In particular, we aim to gradually build an online community of faith.
Our goal is to provide weekly content for use by people at home and to link these people together. It also our goal to gradually encourage congregations and other community groups to provide the HomeFaith Community with access to events, retreats, training and other gatherings. These will be advertised on this website and on social media. It is early days yet, but by the grace of God, this endeavour will help people to connect with one another and to explore their faith. The list of events has already started to grow and if you would like to check out what is on offer, please go to upcoming events.
Many congregations will also find HomeFaith a valuable resource. We currently plan to make available a sermon each week which can be downloaded and played within a worship service. These will be a mixture of sermons prepared by the HomeFaith Community, SaltbushCommunity, and SermonShare. For the foreseeable future, congregations in the Riverina will be provided with access to all, or almost all, online events hosted by the UCA in the Riverina. Please go to upcoming events to see these. To find sermons, kids talks and other resources, go to activities. There is a menu at the top of the resources page to help you find what you might need. Technical tips on a variety of topics will also be provided and you can find these at Tech Tips.
