What is the difference between the Anglican church and the Uniting church?
They are closely aligned in theology (except for Sydney Anglican) however the most obvious difference is that they are structured differently. The Uniting Church operates as a council-based church (no one person can make decisions on their own) and the Anglican church operates with Bishops etc - hierarchically.
Asked in Catholicism
Is a Uniting Church part of the Catholic Religion?
The Uniting Church in Australia (UCA) was formed on 22 June 1977 when many congregations of the Methodist Church of Australasia, the Presbyterian Church of Australia and the Congregational Union of Australia came together under the Basis of Union. The third largest Christian denomination in Australia (the Roman Catholic and the Anglican churches are larger) the Uniting Church has around 243,000 members in 2,500 congregations. According to the Australian Census in 2006 there are 1,135,427 people identifying some sort of association with the Uniting Church. The National Church Life Survey (NCLS) research indicates that approximately 10% of these people attend a church worship gathering frequently. To answer your question, no, it is not part of the Catholic Church.
