Uniting College for Leadership & Theology, South Australia, is a Uniting Church in Australia (UCA) Theological College for the education and training of both lay people and those for specified ministries including the diaconate and youth worker. It is a constituent college of the Adelaide College of Divinity and is located at Brooklyn Park, South Australia and contributes to theological education at The Flinders University of South Australia.
From 1930, staff of the Congregational Union of Australia's Parkin College and the Methodist Church of Australasia's Wesley Theological College lectured students of both institutions. In the 1950s, the Baptist College was founded in Northgate Street, Unley Park and further sharing of staff occurred, although more limited than between Parkin and Wesley. In 1968, Parkin College and Wesley Theological College merged to form Parkin-Wesley College at Wayville, the site of Wesley College.
Later the South Australian UCA Lay Education Centre was merged in. Parkin-Wesley College was renamed Uniting College for Leadership and Theology in January 2009 and incorporates the distance learning previously offered through Coolamon College.
The current principal is Rev. Dr. Andrew Dutney.
