Superintendent Minister Report


peter-hobson-portrait-300.pngJesus’ command to love our neighbour is a central tenant of the Christian faith (Mark 12:31), and directly informs our new strategic planwhich declares that caring for one another is ‘at the heart of everything we do’ as an organisation.
And so, over the last 12 months Albert Street Uniting Church has shared God’s love with those who need it most – by breaking bread with the hungry on a Wednesday evening at Community Meal, by providing opportunities for emerging artists living with disadvantage through Art from the Margins, by engaging in conversation with CALD communities at English Corner, and by partnering with NewLife Brisbane in church planting in the CBD. And of course, each one of these opportunities to ‘love our neighbour’ is also an opportunity to be loved in return. It is a wonderful reminder that WMQ is called to work towards ‘reconciliation, transformation, justice and hope for all people’.

Congratulations to our CEO, Mr Geoff Batkin, who was appointed as a Member of the Order of Australia for his contribution to community service work through social and aged care welfare organisations over the past 40 years.
