Asset Strategy Program (ASP)
Manningham Uniting Church has recently embarked on a Synod-initiated program which provided an independent framework report that defines how property can be utilised to support the delivery of mission and the long-term financial sustainability of the church community. The plan that resulted from such work was recently the subject of a period of "discernment" during the month of April. Following this period the MUC Council approved "Option 1" from the plan. This plan has now gone forward for Presbytery and Synod consideration. Final decision by the UCA Property Trust is expected in late July. If approved, the plan will be implemented beginning in August 2016 and will span approximately six years. Read more about ASP.
MUC Council adopts Framework for the future. MUC Council has adopted "Option One" as a far-reaching plan for rationalisation and development of Church property during 2016 and beyond. Read more about this decision in Message Stick 10.
