National Council of Churches in Australia

The National Council of Churches in Australia (NCAA) is an ecumenical body that brings together nineteen Christian Churches, including Anglicans and other Protestants, Catholics, and several Eastern and Oriental Orthodox denominations. It is organized into several departments, addressing topics ranging from indigenous rights and women's issues to the difficult challenge of sexual abuse by clergy. The largest of these departments is Act for Peace, a group that provides overseas aid on behalf of the member Churches. The NCAA also participates in interfaith exchanges through its membership in the Australian National Dialogue of Christians, Muslims and Jews. It is also associated with the World Council of Churches and the Christian Conference of Asia.
