quicko: the uniting church

The Uniting Church is an Australian Christian denomination that formed from three others -- Presbyterian, Methodist and Congregational.  It's one of the main denominations in Australia and Uniting Care, its service and outreach ministry, is the second biggest employer in Australia (after the government).  Uniting Care runs many homes for the elderly and is one of Australia's unsung heroes -- yet actually much bigger than AngliCare (the Anglican church's equivalent) or the Salvos (the Salvation Army, which many Australians support but don't realize is a Christian organization).

I believe I read some of that information recently on another blog, Cum Tacent Clament, as well.
