An Ecumenical Mission Story

Mission provided a major impetus for the modem ecumenical movement , both globally, and here in Australia. Here, the National Missionary Council (NMC) was formed in 1926, predating the former Australian Council of Churches (ACC). The NMC went through several transformations before becoming a commission of the ACC in the 1960s. While it originally focussed on overseas missions more recently it included a broader task of assisting Australian churches in their common reflection on the content and meaning of the gospel and the manner of its proclamation and witness. Commission on Mission became part of the National Councils of Churches in Australia (NCCA) at its inception in 1994.

In late 2004 the Commission on Mission was wound up, with a small amount of money left to 'seed' a new initiative on mission. In 2006 the NCCA established a working group to explore a new project that was eventually called 'Growing Churches in the Australian Context'. The goal is to bring Australian Churches together for a special consultation on mission. The Working Group has a diverse membership with participants from the Assemblies of God, Salvation Army, Catholic, Orthodox, Anglican, Lutheran and Uniting Churches, the Churches of Christ and Indigenous Christians. In 2008 pilot 'Convocations ' were conducted in Melbourne and Sydney, followed by Brisbane and Adelaide. The Convocations were co-sponsored by the Victorian Council of Churches, the NSW Ecumenical Council, Queensland Churches Together, and the South Australian Council of Churches respectively. The days centred around the questions 'what is health and growth', 'what is the Australian context' and 'what does it mean to be a growing church in the Australian context'.

These successful initial Convocations, guided by Kingsley Nowell (Salvation Army), included a wide representation of the different streams within the Australian church. There was a healthy sense of unity and trust in each room, and a shared commitment to 'cheer each other on' in the mission that God is calling us to perform, separately, and together.

The Working Group is now considering how best to carry the project forward, in co-operation with Churches, State Ecumenical Councils, and local structures. This may result in a 'roll out' of similar conversations around the country, culminating in a major national consultation closer to 2010, the centenary of the Edinburgh World Missionary Conference. The 1910 conference was a primary stimulus for the modern day conversation between Christian churches of different traditions around a shared identity and purpose...

'that we may be one , that the world will know' (John 17:23).


One planned outcome for the Edinburgh 2010 centenary celebrations is central to the Growing Churches in the Australian Context Working Group's activities: 'The biblical mission imperative will be affirmed and articulated within our contemporary contexts in terms of mission in the world with particular focus on evangelisation'.

The Working Group is hoping to plan similar days to the 2008 Convocations for Perth, Hobart, and Darwin if possible, and also to gather a 'brainstorming' sesson for the way forward.

The policy should be read with the National Privacy Principles ("NPPs") set out in Schedule 3 to the Privacy Act. They are a set of basic standards for privacy protection.

1. In this policy, a reference to "NCCA" means the National Council of Churches in Australia.

2. The objectives of the NCCA are:

    [a] to encourage and enable the member churches to develop their existing relationships by

[i] 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

[ii] coming to know each other better i all respects, including the areas of spirituality, liturgy, theology, history, sociology and culture;

[b] to encourage and enable the member churches in the light of the Gospel to give prophetic leadership to each other and the community by

[i] developing a deeper understanding of evangelism/ evangelisation in Australia's cultural context;

[ii] addressing moral issues;

[iii] speaking out on behalf of oppressed people;

[iv] acting in solidarity with Aboriginal and Islander people; and

[v] responding to human need and acting on issues of justice, peace and creation;

[c] to promote relationships

[i] 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

[ii] with people of other living faiths; and

[d] to undertake joint initiatives as determined from time to time by the National Forum at the request of member churches.

3. The NCCA is committed to complying with the NPPs in the various activities which it undertakes in accordance with its objectives. If there is any inconsistency between this policy and the NPPs, then the NPPs prevail.

4. In the course of its activities, the NCCA collects personal information regarding contact persons in churches and organisations, people who indicate interest in its activities or objectives, supporters, donors and other persons who have contact with it.

5. When the NCCA conducts fundraising activities, it collects personal information regarding donors and a transaction history on donations made to the activities. The information is used to contact supporters in order to inform, educate and fundraise.

6. The NCCA's primary purpose in collecting and using personal information is the furtherance of the objectives set out in paragraph 2.

7. The NCCA will only use personal information about an individual for a secondary purpose (i.e. something beyond the scope of the primary purpose) if that individual has consented or the use is otherwise permitted by the NPPs.

8. The personal information which is collected by the NCCA may include information which is within the definition of "sensitiveinformation" in the Privacy Act (e.g. information about a person's religious beliefs or affiliations). As a non-profit organisation, the NCCA is permitted to collect sensitive information without a person's express consent provided that the conditions set out in NPP 10.1 are satisfied.

9. The NCCA will take reasonable steps to keep personal information secure and will, subject to the NPPs, comply with any request from a person to correct or remove his or her information.

10. The NCCA, in furtherance of its objectives, undertakes some of its activities in conjunction with State ecumenical councils, members churches and other directly related bodies. Personal information may be used or disclosed to those organisations in the conduct of these activities. The NCCA may also disclose selected information to persons conducting research in accordance with its objectives, and to consultants e.g. for development and implementation of fundraising appeals and education programs. In such cases, the NCCA will require those organisations or persons to adhere to similar standards for privacy protection to those which are set out in this policy.

11. The NCCA will appoint a Privacy Officer who will be responsible for storing, correcting and giving people access to personal information collected about them. The NCCA may charge fees for access to personal information.

12. The NCCA's Privacy Officer, in consultation with the General Secretary will be empowered to receive and deal with any complaint that the NCCA has not complied with this policy or the NPPs.
