The Financial Services Team administers the Uniting Church SA's $10m annual budget and provides financial services to Presbytery and Synod departments. Contact us through Reception (08) 8236 4200 or email  to make your general enquiries. 

The Team supports local churches by offering information and assistance to treasurers and ministers.


The annual information statement (AIS) is due 6 months after the end of your financial year.

The ACNC requirements apply to ALL Uniting Church SA entities that have an ABN, regardless of their size.  Do not fall into the trap of thinking “this doesn’t apply to us”.
