The Uniting Church is the third largest Christian denomination in Australia and the first church to be created in and of Australia.
On any Sunday more than 2,500 congregations worship at a Uniting Church and our churches can be found deep in the heart of our cities, or in our most isolated and outback towns.
Even though our congregations can be vastly different, each is a community in which people seek to follow Jesus, learn about God, share their faith, care for each other, serve the local community and seek to live faithfully and with real joy.
