Tomorrow marks the 40th anniversary of the formation of the Uniting Church in Australia.

The Church came into being on 22 June 1977, after three denominations - Congregational Union in Australia, the Methodist Church of Australasia, and the Presbyterian Church of Australia - joined together.

UnitingCare Australia National Director Claerwen Little said the milestone is also an important opportunity to reflect on the Uniting Church’s commitment to community service.
