The Uniting Church in Australia (UCA) is the third largest Christian denomination in Australia. It was formed in 1977 as a union of three churches: the Congregational Union of Australia, the Methodist Church of Australasia and the Presbyterian Church of Australia.
In uniting, the members of those bodies testified to “that unity which is both Christ’s gift and will for the Church”. Ecumenism remains a vital aspect in all of the church’s life and work – in congregations, national commitments to work together with other churches, and relationships and partnerships with churches of various denominations in Asia and the Pacific.
