We are the Uniting Church. A community of people following Jesus and God to live with love, grace and hope in the world. (Taken from the UCA Assembly)
The Uniting Church is the first church to be created ‘in and of Australia’ and we are proud to be the third largest denomination in Australia.

Basis of Union
The Uniting Church was established in 1977 via the unification of three existing Australian churches: the Methodist Church of Australia, the Presbyterian Church of Australia and the Congregational Union of Australia. The founding document for the Uniting Church is known as the ‘Basis of Union’ and it outlines the fundamental beliefs and structure of our church.

Service to the community has always been an integral part of the church and the not-for-profit organisation ‘Uniting’ is the community services arm of the Uniting Church.
