Our History

In uniting, the members of those bodies testified to:

“that unity which is both Christ’s gift and will for the Church”

(Basis of Union, para. 1).

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.

The document on which the union was established is the Basis of Union, which states our core beliefs and structure as a Christian church.

As for the history of the land we operate on, the Gnarla Boodja Mili Mili (Our Country on Paper) is an interactive online map that features names, photos, and information from historical Nyungar places throughout the Perth CBD area.

Uniting Church History

If you are interested to discover more about the history of the Uniting Church in Australia, the Uniting Church National History Society (UCNHS) was formed to preserve and promote the historical journey of the Uniting Church in Australia and its predecessor churches.

The Uniting Church National History Society is a resource for all members of our church and beyond. The Society helps to promote our rich and diverse heritage that is unique among Australian churches.

The Society exists to encourage:

  • Studying our heritage;
  • Communicating our story and helping members to tell it;
  • Educating for the future with a good understanding of our identity.

You are invited to join – download the information brochure or go to the UCNHS website here – https://uniting.church/uca-national-history-society/
