Project Reconnect logo & heading.png

An initiative of the Uniting Church in Australia

Project Reconnect is a resource for small congregations without the services of a Minister. We provide messages based on the Revised Common Lectionary to assist congregations to structure worship. We also provide videos of songs recorded by various church choirs from Together in Song as well as other sources to assist in the absence of a musician. It includes a PDF information sheet with video messages, music resources and discussion starters.
