WELCOME

Welcome to the Effective Living Centre

The Effective Living Centre (ELC) is an ongoing community engagement project established by Christ Church – Wayville Uniting Church.

Our primary purpose is to promote living effectively in our present time and creating partnerships with members of the wider community who identify with achieving the aims of the ELC.

We seek to enlighten and empower people to take responsibility for advancing our society towards the common good. We are open to all people regardless of any social, political or religious persuasion.

The ELC is a recognised mission centre of Mission Resourcing, Uniting Church SA.
