Throughout AUC we encourage a mutual web of care to support each other throughout life’s journey. Building and sustaining healthy relationships is very important to our community life.
We have agreed together Ways of Engaging to encourage healthy relationships both in-person and online. As a gathered congregation who meet online and in person, we also recognise that we need to be intentional about creating space for people to get to know each other.
Social Space Opportunities:
Throughout AUC we encourage a mutual web of care in which we are all called to support and encourage each other in different ways.
Post-Service Social Time
Every Sunday after the service there is a Social Time for which everyone is welcome to attend. This is either held online over Zoom for those worshipping at home and in-person for those attending our blended services on the first and third Sunday of the month.
Wednesday Social Time
Every Wednesday at 13:00, there is an open time to meet and chat online over Zoom. Please feel welcome to join in for a few minutes up to the hour. Bring your lunch if it is your lunch break. All are welcome.
Our Tribe LGBTQi+ ministry meets monthly on the first Thursday of the month over Zoom and has social time at the end of its gathering.
AUC Facebook Page
Every month there is a postal mailing to all AUC members and associate members with updates and words of reflection.
Also for members and associates, there is a pastoral network with phone calls for people who cannot engage so easily online or in person.
Mental Health Support
Many people struggle with their mental health, and as well as occasional training courses on mental health topics, we have mental health resources on our website.
