Morialta Uniting church work to promote and advocate the ideals of social justice within our church family, and the wider community. This is in response to Christ’s call to stand with the powerless and marginalised and to care for the creation in a responsible and sustainable way.
The Fair Trade Movement
which is about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability, and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world.

Christmas Bowl Appeal

We support and advocate
A Refugees or Asylum Seekers right to a just treatment under law and for Australia to accept its responsibilities as a signatory to the UN Refugee Convention. We are particularly concerned about mandatory detention of children in detention and that the policy of turning back boats only prevents entry to Australia, rather than provide a just outcome for those seeking shelter – it merely shifts the responsibility of care to our neighbours.
is a major issue in Australia. Morialta UC hosts forums and discussion groups to help inform people so that they can make a reasoned decision about the need to enshrine human rights in law.
Reconciliation and Recognise are important issues in bridging the gulf that exists between the original peoples of Australia and those who have arrived over the last 3 centuries. We observe Reconciliation Sunday and promote public awareness of issues relating to Aboriginal culture and life, such as the Recognise Movement.
Interfaith relations and understanding are as important as ecumenical discussions in helping each of us to understand our own traditions and culture, as well as the traditions and culture of others. We promote interfaith and ecumenical understanding by hosting public forums and inviting representatives of other faiths to come and share their traditions and belief systems with us.

- On Mission Sunday each year there is an additional offering which goes towards our mission projects.
- Come along on the Saturday before Mothers Day, and support our Netball Teams and while you’re there buy a cake and/or some flowers! The Netball Teams run the stall to raise funds for mission projects. You may like to bake a cake to donate.
THANK YOU FROM THE BEYOND MORIALTA MISSION PROJECTS TEAM!
We would like to thank you all for your support and generosity. Total funds raised in 2022 were $3000. These have been split evenly between Congress at Oodnadatta and a Uniting World project for education in remote Northern India.
A particular thank you to the Morialta Netball Club, for their contribution from their Mothers Day cake stall. We so much appreciate this wonderful service you offer to Mission Projects each year.
These are the projects we are supporting in 2023:
This project supports education and training of disabled children and adults.
The patrol covers the largest area of South Australia and the Bush Chaplain works out of Quorn in the Flinders Ranges. The cost of keeping a Bush Chaplains on the road is $120,000 per year and with the current drought their task is even greater as they respond and care for those in disaster.

Morialta has a very friendly netball club. The people are always helpful and it is fun to be there. We like playing for Morialta because we enjoy catching up with friends and it is not overly competitive.
We really like how proud we feel when they announce our results and how we played in church on Sunday and when everyone asks us how the season is going.
Morialta Uniting Netball Club is special because it is run by friends and family, and is very community based. Everyone there knows everyone else and people are always saying hello. At the club home games, it is fun to help out in the canteen and sell yummy food and drinks to team mates and the other visiting teams and their supporters.
The main thing we love about Morialta Uniting Netball Club is how everyone there helps us to develop and improve our skills.
