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.

Voice. Treaty. Truth. Let's work together.
