“What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the human heart conceived, what God has prepared for those who love him”1 Cor 2:9

It is with great joy that we announce that the Reverend John Gilmore, from the Churches of Christ in Australia, has been appointed as NCCA President after the decision of the NCCA Annual General Meeting on 27 October 2021.

With a long standing interest and passion for ecumenical leadership, we welcome him with prayerful gratitude. 

"...becoming the President of the NCCA is humbling and somewhat overwhelming. I express my appreciation to the Churches of Christ and the member churches of the NCCA for this privilege." Rev John Gilmore
