LOCAL COMMUNITY

SU supports local people doing mission, sharing the love of Jesus and bringing about the Kingdom of God in their local community.

Whether aimed at a geographical or an interest community, through exploring justice or developing local community life SU supports projects that explore innovative ideas for mission and community development. SU believes that mission and outreach programs are most effective when they occur in the context of ongoing relationships, and people ‘journeying’ together.  We encourage incarnational mission – where people, groups and churches become involved in communities, sharing in the lives of those they seek to share God’s good news with. We can offer support and training to those already practicing mission, and support, consultancy and organisational structures to those exploring ideas for mission. Programs include Holiday Clubs, Light Parties, Community Camps, youth groups and other forms of local community presence. The love of God shared by local people in local communities around WA – that’s you, with your church, in your community!

Just Community

There seems to be a move of God’s Spirit across the West that is causing churches to engage with their communities. Christ’s body are getting behind expressions of mercy and justice in communities and sometimes setting up projects where needed. Many are then able to tell others about the love of God through Christ. We are seeing mustard seeds of God’s Kingdom. TEAR and SU want to encourage, support, inspire and equip these churches, groups and individuals as we share with each other what God is doing in our small corners around afternoon tea. We will also highlight some resources that may be helpful.  

AMUC

“AMUC was an experience that formed my understanding of faith in action, and exposed me to a worldview that is now central to my faith in God. Highly recommended for any- one seeking to bring Jesus to the world around us.” – Jaye Van Wollingen

What is AMUC (Among the Urban Community)?

It’s like a camp – but its focus is on discipleship.
It’s like a retreat – but with times of action.
It’s like a mission exposure trip – but in our own city.
It’s a challenge and a call to follow Jesus, to be with the rejected and marginalised.

AMUC is a unique experience. It’s a mission exposure trip for adults in our own city.

You will be challenged to consider how the Gospel ought to shape the way we respond to human need and brokenness. AMUC enables you to explore what it might look like to follow the footsteps of our Servant King through our own city in the company of those who are living their faith on the streets.

The AMUC experience invites followers to a deeper faith where there are no easy answers. At AMUC, our aim is to broaden your Christian experience and allow space for you to reflect on the message of Christ and how it impacts all of your life.

AMUC is a joint initiative of Scripture Union and TEAR Australia.
