NCCA 10th National Forum 

Living and Walking in the Holy Spirit: called to transforming discipleship

In the cold but pleasantly sunny surrounds of the Australian Centre for Christianity and Culture, Canberra approximately 60 people from 11 member churches came together for the 2019 Triennial Forum through prayer and reflection, dialogue and discernment. We gathered to renew the purpose of the Council and provide direction on Council activities and issues of focus for the next three years.


The Great Commission
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit."

Matthew 28:18-19 (NIV)
