NCCANational Council of Churches in AustraliaThe objectives of the NCCA are:to encourage and enable the member churches to develop their existing relationships by:
  • raising awareness among their people of Christ's gift of unity and of his call to express that unity through prayer, dialogue and shared engagement in mission; and
  • coming to know each other better in all respects, including the areas of spirituality, liturgy, theology, history, sociology and culture;
  • to encourage and enable the member churches in the light of the Gospel to give prophetic leadership to each other and the community by:
  • developing a deeper understanding of evangelism/ evangelisation in Australia's cultural context;
  • addressing moral issues;
  • speaking out on behalf of oppressed people;
  • acting in solidarity with Aboriginal and Islander people; and
  • responding to human need and acting on issues of justice, peace and creation;
  • to promote relationships
  • with non-member churches, state ecumenical bodies within Australia, regional and national ecumenical bodies in Asia and the Pacific, and the World Council of Churches; and
  • with people of other living faiths; and
  • to undertake joint initiatives as determined from time to time by the National Forum at the request of member churches.
