The Centenary congregation seeks to be 'Good Neighbours' to
one another and within the local community. We are committed to listening and to
understanding the needs of those who, in a variety of ways, are part of our
When asked the question "who is
my neighbour?" Jesus tells the story of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10). The
question finds its answer as "the one who was kind to him", to which Jesus adds
"You go then and do the same".
Like the Samaritan, some of
these are people of other cultures and other faiths. We are aware of being on a
journey on which we are asked to become a place of safety, healing and
hospitality for people of all kinds of backgrounds, and to discover God's word

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Minister at Centenary Uniting,
My name is Barnabas
(Bong Gun) KIM. I am the minister at Centenary
in North Parramatta.
I was born in Korea in 1960, married Esther in
1983 and have two boys, Samuel 30, Moses 24.
I am an Asian
middle-aged married male migrant minister in the Uniting
Church in Australia. Growing up in Korea
I experienced the cultures of Confucianism, Buddhism, Shamanism, and
Christianity, all which have impacted on who I am.
I came to
Australia in 1999 and have
been living in Sydney since then, which means I am a
Korean-Australian in this multi-cultural and multi-religious society. My
identity as a Korean-Australian affects how I see things. It becomes a struggle
to form a personal
identity but it is also a strength as it helps me relate to
others from different cultural backgrounds and experiences. Living in multicultural and multi-faith Australia, so different to Korea, certainly has affected how I
understand life’s meaning.
human being and minister, I am always contemplating the questions: “Who am I?
What is the meaning of life? Who is God? What is the nature of the Church? What
is the true meaning of religion?” And I have not found the exact answer, I have just begun to understand a little.
are interested in exploring these questions with me and others, you are
welcome, whoever you are, to come along on a Sunday morning - our worship service
is at 9.30am
or give me a ring on 9683 5023
