Established in 1977, the Uniting Church in Australia brought together people from the Presbyterian Church, the Methodist Church and the Congregational Union. It is a truly Australian and indigenous, contemporary Christian church.

The Uniting Church stands with the people of this and other lands in their search for spiritual life, justice, identity and dignity. Its call is to be a fellowship of reconciliation, a body within which the diverse gifts of its members are used for the building up of the whole, and an instrument through which Christ may work and bear witness to himself.

The church confidently believes that through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, God brings us into right relationship with God, whereby in faith we can:

  • live in a close, loving, personal, dynamic relationship with the living God;
  • participate in a worshipping, caring and serving community of Christians;
  • receive God's gifts so that life can be what God means it to be — loving, purposeful, joyful and eternal;
  • tell others of this good news and live it out in acts of compassion, service and justice in the community.

The Uniting Church aims to be an inclusive community of different views, cultures and expressions of faith.

As one of the largest non-government providers of community services in all parts of Australia, it is committed to reflecting the love and grace of God in caring for people, in advocating for those with special needs and for the equitable and appropriate provision of social services.

The Uniting Church is committed to the ministry of the whole people of God, and to discovering the gifts that each person brings to the service of Christ and the church. Church people gather regularly as congregations. Congregations in each local area are central to the church's life. They provide caring faith communities to which all people are welcome. They aim to unite people with each other and with God.

For more information on the Uniting Church in Australia, please see the Uniting Church in Australia website or the NSW Synod website.

The Basis of Union is the document that set the platform for how these churches came together. It outlines the roles of the different councils of the Church including the presbyteries, the synods, and the Assembly.

It states the central affirmations of the Christian faith and is a guide to what is central in the life of the Uniting Church.

The Assembly has translated a number of materials into:
