The Uniting Church was formed on 22 June 1977, after three denominations – Congregational Union in Australia, the Methodist Church of Australasia and the Presbyterian Church of Australia joined together.
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.
