The NCCA is 19 Christian Churches, gathered from across this wide brown land, who have embarked on a pilgrimage together. We each bring a widely varied history of place, experience, and theology, but we share a common faith and confession in the Lord Jesus Christ as God and Saviour. We also share a common future as we are convinced that the future of Christians in Australia lies together, not in separation.

Welcome to the first Newsletter for 2015 – a much overdue Newsletter. It is my hope that we will have a Newsletter at least once a month from now onwards.
