Trinity Ipswich Uniting Church was delighted and honoured to be the host for the National Niue Uniting Church Conference for 2016.

The conference commenced on Friday 9th September with a Welcome Service at which QLD Synod Moderator, Rev David Baker, preached the message. Saturday, delegates held business discussions, Bible studies, and heard from several speakers. Sunday, the closing of the Conference was conducted, with a Worship Service, followed by feasting and entertainment.
It was a great opportunity for us to meet Niuean people from around Australia, and to support our Niuean Worship Group from Trinity Ipswich UCA. Listening to the issues faced by this Pacific Island Group, as they integrate into European culture, is helpful for Uniting Church leaders to come to a better understanding about how to help with worship and administration resourcing and training.
