Our logos

The Uniting Church emblemUniting Church Australia

The logo, or emblem, of the Uniting Church in Australia shows:

  • the cross of Jesus Christ
  • standing over a darkened world
  • the Holy Spirit - symbolised by the dove with the wings of flame
  • the wide U at the bottom points to the fact that we are uniting; as a semicircle it reminds us that the renewing of the church and the world are incomplete.

The current version of UC logo/ emblem which has been approved by the Assembly Standing Committee can be downloaded here.

Synod of South Australia

At the November 2018 Presbytery and Synod meeting, voting members agreed that the existing structure of one Synod and one Presbytery in South Australia (existing since 2006) be modified to allow for more than one Presbytery.

The meeting further agreed to:

  • A non-geographical Presbytery (NGP) would be created to operate by 1 July, 2019
  • Additional Presbytery(ies) would be formed
  • Congregations will have an opportunity to nominate which Presbytery they wish to be part of

The vision for this new logo, is for the Uniting Church in South Australia to be reminded of its core values: to be a missional church which undertakes ministry in accordance with the Basis of Union and the will of God.
