Overview

It is mandatory for all UAAC members to wear the church uniform whilst attending all church functions. With a few exceptions, distinctive outfits are worn with a blue belt printed the name of the church in full. The outfits are worn in relation to a position a member holds in church.

UAAC members are prohibited from wearing the Uniform in public, unless when attending fellow members’ funerals or performing other church sanctioned tasks such as unveiling tombstones.

All church costumes are professionally made by expert tailors who design either a piece or a complete outfit. Specialized garments, caps and belts are only made at the Church Head Quarters. These include complete outfits for the Councilors, Senior Councilors and Inspectors.
