On 6 May 1969, the then Presbyterian and Methodist Women’s College Council adopted a new name and motto for the College being constructed: Grace.
“Grace” is the word normally used to translate the koine Greek word charis in the Christian Scriptures. Charis variously means gift, blessing, favour, gratitude, thanks and kindness.
Love and generosity are at the heart of Christian community. They are also important human values shared by many traditions and perspectives.
Established in 1970, Grace College was jointly funded by the Methodist and Presbyterian churches in Queensland. The College is now an agency of The Uniting Church in Australia (Qld Synod) and The Presbyterian Church of Queensland; and is an affiliated residential college with The University of Queensland.
