Welcome to the website for the Hope Mission Network (HopeNet),
a network of Uniting Church congregations across South Australia.
HopeNet is a Uniting Church SA mission network comprised of about 60 congregations and faith communities who share a common evangelical understanding of the place of scripture in the life of the church in discerning the living and active Word of God. HopeNet’s priority and main purpose is to support member congregations as they express the presence of Jesus Christ in worship, witness and mission in their local communities.
While HopeNet came into being in protest over the Assembly’s sexuality debates in recent times, it has been a growing network of UCA congregations who revel in the hope of the Gospel, determine to teach, eat and live in the Holy Scriptures and join with each other in strong loving communion. Yes there are battles to be fought, but we will lock shoulder to shoulder like Nehemiah in his day. And there are daily lives to be lived in thanksgiving to our great and glorious Lord. Christ is the Word in body, in Scripture, in proclamation of His Gospel and in His church of which we are happily a part. As part of our Memorandum states, the ‘One Lord Jesus Christ’ is the final revelation of God who has appeared once for all in a unique event of universal significance.
