AUC is a progressive and inclusive community gathered from across the city. We worship, grow, pray, support and work together, that individually and as a community, we can discover and make real the love and hope of God in the world. We offer a program of activites for children and young people called AUC Junior Church.
Ethos of Inclusion
AUC aspires to be an inclusive, growing and active Christian community.
We celebrate the Christian Story, welcome and affirm people of all faiths and none and work to promote justice and wellbeing locally and globally.
We welcome into full community life all people regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation, race and ability.
AUC is part of the world wide Reformed Church. More than 70 million Christians are members of the Reformed family of churches. They uphold the historic Trinitarian creeds of the Church universal and find the supreme authority for their lives in the Word of God in the Bible, discerned under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. They order their community life through councils of the church, where ministers and lay people together seek the mind of Christ. AUC understands itself to be part of the Progressive Christian Movement.
