Outcome - 2021
Habitat UC combines congregations from Canterbury (St David's), Hawthorn (Augustine) and the previous Kew UC (Highbury Gve)
Kew UC now combines Joong Ang and congregations from East Kew UC and West Hawthorn UC
BCO, Deepdene UC and Auburn UC continue separately.
The Proposed Boroondara Regional Network
Nine congregations were grouped together: East Kew UC, West Hawthorn UC, Joong Ang UC, Kew, Habitat Hawthorn UC, Habitat Kew UC, Habitat Canterbury UC, Deepdene UC, Boroondara Community Outreach (BCO) and Auburn UC. The aim was to generate more revenue from properties, by sharing and outsourcing the administration of all buildings to a professional manager. It was proposed that the revenue be pooled and used to refurbish properties on a needs basis. However, after participation in the initial negotiations, this did not eventuate.
