Social Justice

In his life and ministry, Jesus made friends with the powerless and challenged those who abused authority. The church is called to participate in this same ministry as we share together in the life of Christ. The Social Justice Committee at SHUC was formed to take action to uphold the individual worth, equality and dignity of all people. The Committee strives to work in solidarity with those who experience injustice, oppression or abuse of their human rights. The committee also acts as an advocate for the environment and works toward social good in the community. Guided by the Synods Department of Justice and International Mission, we provide the congregation with postcards, petitions and drafted letters on justice issues, and encourage their delivery to governments and people of influence.

King's Collective concert

These two photos (above and below) are of the concert we had in Spetember to raise funds for the community of Naivasha in Kenya.

PJ Day

Our annual PJ Day focuses the congregation's attention on homelessness.

Make Poverty History

We are committed to the Millennium Development Goals to Make Poverty History.
In May 2010, one of our young members participated in a 'Road Trip' with the Oaktree Foundation to raise awareness of global poverty and advocate with our government for increased foreign aid. She then shared something of her experience at one of our All Age services (see photo below).
