Following the launch of the new website and app last year, ongoing improvements and additions continue to be made. This digital platform provides new opportunities for communication with the ability to RSVP to events, lodge prayer requests (coming soon!), listen to messages, receive notifications according to specific ministries with which you choose to connect and much more.
To make the most of the app and the website (and, if you call CoroUniting your home church, to be able to access information that was previously password-protected, eg. newsletters, minutes etc) you will need to [download the app and create an account](https://corouniting.org.vinteract.com.au/d/TJ27u7R50gzZrRkklw94B590n), or [create an account via the website](https://corouniting.org.vinteract.com.au/d/3UrQ48QqD7mISVbHHc0TF26gP) (please note that creating an account on either platform will automatically give you an account for both, however the app requires downloading to have an app account).

It is a requirement of the Uniting Church in Australia (UCA) that Church Council keep and maintain a Membership Register at CoroUniting.
The four categories of Membership as defined in the UCA Regulations are:
- Confirmed Member
- Baptised Member
There is no obligation to have your name on the Membership Register, but this is necessary if you wish to vote at meetings of the congregation.
Only Confirmed Members and Members-in-Association are eligible to vote at meetings of the congregation.
See the Membership at CoroUniting form for more information and to to sign a declaration for Membership.
Forms are also available at the Welcome Desk or from Sue in the office.
More information about Membership within the UCA can be found in the [Uniting Church in Australia Constitution](https://assembly.uca.org.au/images/stories/Regulations/2018/2018_Constitution__Regulations.pdf).
Please see the accompanying PDF for a calendar of events for CoroUniting for 2019.
Deliberations within the wider Uniting Church regarding new Networks and Presbyteries has created confusion around the structure of UCA governance.
This [link](https://sa.uca.org.au/pres-synod-meetings/introduction-to-governance-in-the-uniting-church/sagovstructure) provides some insight into how Presbytery currently operates in SA. The move towards an additional non-geographic presbytery and potentially other presbyteries will affect the current model. Networks (such as ACC, Catalyst) differ from Presbyteries in that they do not have any authority within the formal governance structures of the UCA.
We will continue to communicate with the congregation to provide more clarity on this in coming months as changes become clearer.
