For more than 40 years, Uniting Church people and organisations have been supporting their Church by investing with UC Invest. This support has grown to such a level that UC Invest grants over $2 million every year to the Mission & Service Fund of Uniting Church SA.
This generous gift enables many services within the whole Church to be funded. Without the grant, we would not have the paid staff we need with expertise in areas like Chaplaincy, Pastoral Care, the Secretariat, Uniting Care support, Payroll, Finance, and Property. All these workers contribute to the bringing of the Kingdom of Heaven through the work and witness of the Uniting Church in South Australia.
Due to new Government Policy, UC Invest now needs to make some substantial changes to continue to provide investment services. I have full confidence in the ability of both the Uniting Church SA Investment Fund Ltd Committee and the Synod’s Investment Services personnel to respond to these changes and ensure the continuity of services we appreciate so much.
I am writing to thank you for your ongoing support of UC Invest. Through your support, much has been achieved that has secured our church for the future.
I would also like to recommend that you continue that support, by transferring your investment into the new legal structure, by signing the forms UC Invest have sent out that will ensure this happens.
I commend to you the new legal structure that UC Invest has adopted in response to government regulation.
By transferring your investment you will be continuing to help yourself, our Church and community for many years to come.
