Organisation profile

The Australian Centre for Christianity and Culture (ACC&C) is an ecumenical body reflecting the faith background of approximately 61 per cent (13.5 million) of the Australian population. The Centre is located on a five hectare site on the edge of the Parliamentary Triangle in Canberra.
 Our vision is to be the go to place for the interface between Christianity, Australian society, culture and Indigenous people.
Wisdom for the common good; is what the Centre is all about.
We have identified Four Pillars through which our vision is expressed.
The Four Pillars are: Wisdom through Civil Society; Peace through new religious engagements; Resilience in institutional life and ethical leadership; Creativity through the Arts, Sciences and Culture.
The Centre is based on a common confession of the Triune God witnessed to in Holy Scripture, expressed in the ancient Apostles Creed and embodied in the life and mission of the Church. This reflects the faith base of the National Council of Churches of Australia (NCCA)
