Uniting Aboriginal and Islander Christian Congress

In 1982 at Crystal Creek, just north of Townsville, First Peoples came together, Christian leaders from across Australia. Guided by the Spirit they discerned a vision for a National Congress - a First Peoples movement, within the UCA.

In 1985, the Assembly of the Uniting Church in Australia unanimously welcomed and agreed to officially support the formation of the Uniting Aboriginal and Islander Christian Congress (UAICC).
