Displaying items by tag: basis of union
Uniting Church Assembly staff took a closer look at what makes up the DNA of the Uniting Church in an information session with Rev. Prof Andrew Dutney this week.
The session provided all staff members, including those who work in our Assembly Agencies, with a deeper understanding of the structure, polity, identity and core values of the Uniting Church in Australia.
Three denominations came together in 1977 to form the Uniting Church in Australia. 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.
