Queensland Churches Together shares its vision of unity with similar bodies in other states. Though each of the state bodies is independent of the National Council of Churches in Australia (NCCA), there are strong links between the national body and the states as well.
In 2007 general secretaries of the state bodies and the executive staff of NCCA set up an informal network and called it AEON: Australian Ecumenical Officers' Network. With the help of this network they share resources and learn from each other. Communication takes place mainly via telephone, email and internet (internal website), with an occasional meeting face-to-face.
The other state bodies are:
- NSW Ecumenical Council (NSWEC)
- Victorian Council of Churches (VCC)
- Tasmanian Council of Churches (TCC)
- South Australian Council of Churches (SACC)
- Council of Churches in Western Australia (CCWA)
The National Council of Churches in Australia (NCCA) is a member of the regional Asian ecumenical body, the Christian Conference of Asia (CCA). In the areas of interfaith dialogue and ecumenical formation, as well as on individual issues, there are significant exchanges between Australian ecumenical bodies and CCA. We greatly appreciate the opportunities CCA offers to learn from our Asian neighbours.
