The Uniting church was formed in 1977 with the merger of the Congregational, Methodist and most of the Presbyterian churches. The Uniting Church is governed by a range of non-hierarchical and inter-related councils which each have responsibility for various roles within the denomination. These begin at the local, or congregational level, and rise through regional (presbytery) and state (synod) bodies to the national council (assembly). 
The Synod of Tasmania merged with the Synod of Victoria effective from 22 June 2002, to form a single Synod of Victoria and Tasmania.
