Our History

Murrumbeena Uniting Church is a congregation of the Uniting Church in Australia (UCA). The UCA was formed in 1977 by the coming together of the Presbyterian, Methodist and Congregational churches.  The missional and ecumenical vision of the UCA is beautifully articulated in the Basis of Union, a brief document you can read below.

The UCA has a reformed and evangelical theological heritage, with John Wesleys sermons and the Westminster Confession amongst its confessional documents.
