The NCCA Eco Mission Network is mandated to share resources that will assist our member churches to deepen their understanding of the ecological implications of our Sacred Scripture. 


We anticipate a day when congregations of all churches in Australia are:

  • sensitive to the voice of Earth calling us to tell her story and to heal her ecological wounds caused by human greed
  • ready to respond to the word from the Scriptures enjoining us serve and preserve our home and keep this sanctuary unpolluted
  • willing to explore a theology of God in creation, with the cosmic Christ reconciling all things and the Spirit animating Earth


  • moved to follow the lead of congregations and communities that have initiated programs of healing and pathways of celebration.
