The Multi-Cross Cultural Reference Group aims to assist congregations, presbyteries and Synod as together we seek to embrace the gift and the challenge of fulfilling our stated calling to be a truly multicultural church.
As a reference group, we seek to be a resource, enabler, advocate and bridge; to help to build relationships; to be a catalyst for events; and to bring expertise and encouragement to situations where cultural diversity offers particular challenges and opportunities. We also seek to support culturally and linguistically diverse communities, congregations, leaders and ministry agents in their life within the church.
We will both initiate proposals and respond to requests, drawing on the gifts and skills of our members and the wider culturally diverse communities of the church.
