About the 40th anniversary Logo and stories requested by NSW/ACT Synod …
In 1977, three Australian churches came together as one. The Presbyterian, Methodist and Congregational churches have been the Uniting Church in Australia ever since.
The 40th anniversary logo can be viewed as a starburst, fireworks or a dandelion head whose seeds are spread on the wind. The image brings to mind celebration, diversity and all the varied parts of the Uniting Church.
The colours intentionally connect to those that remind us of our covenant with First Peoples, the red earth and ochre.
The tagline, “All of this is us”, encompasses past, present and future – all that brought us together and formed us as we began, all that has shaped us has involved us over the past 40 years, and all that we hope for as we look to the future.
