In 1967, South Woden Uniting Church started meeting in the house occupiedby the Bridge family at 10 Julius Street Pearce, with the Reverend Geoff Bridgeas Minister. The members believe that the church is the people, not a building, and that as a vital congregation, their Christian mission was and is to encourage, affirm, empower and support members to go out into the wider community (as individuals or groups), to infiltrate and insurrect, to form alliances, and to be the face and hands of God in the world.
South Woden Uniting Church is a community which seeks to live out the Christian faith as a basis for the whole of life and to express compassion for all people and for God's world. They have been a vital part of the Christian community in Canberra for 50 years.
This book is a record of their commitment to mission and to their community internationally, nationally, locally and to those and their loved ones who make up the Congregation
