The Uniting Church Western Australia is an Australian church for the 21st century. We’re part of the Uniting Church, one of the first churches to be created in Australia and the third largest Christian denomination in Australia. In Western Australia, the Presbytery and Synod of Western Australia serve an area of two million square kilometres. We have over 100 congregations, seven schools as well as caring agencies such as Good Samaritan Industries, Juniper and UnitingCare West.
The Uniting Church came into being on 22 June 1977, after three denominations—the Congregational Union in Australia, the Methodist Church of Australasia and the Presbyterian Church of Australia—joined together. Ecumenism remains a vital aspect in all of the Church’s life and work – in local congregations, national commitments to work together with other churches, and relationships and partnerships with churches of various denominations in Asia and the Pacific. Visit the ‘Our History’ page to learn more about the Uniting Church.
The administration of the Uniting Church Western Australia happens through the Uniting Church Centre in Perth. Our staff are responsible for overall support and resourcing of the church — especially in community services, mission planning, theological educational services, media and administration. Our elected head is the Moderator and our General Secretary is appointed as the Secretary and executive officer of the Synod.
O gracious and holy God, give us the diligence to seek you, wisdom to perceive you and patience to wait for you.
Grant us O God, minds renewed by your word, eyes to discern your presence, ears to hear your quiet voice and hearts receptive to your love, joy and peace.
Through Christ our Lord.
