Welcome to the SACC ...

... the Council of Churches in South Australia.

The aim of the South Australian Council of Churches is to assist the churches across South Australia in their journey towards more visible signs of Christian unity and to explore what they might do better together than individually and by nurturing and nourishing their understanding, spiritual growth and practice of ecumenism.

Ecumenical Lenten Resource 2016

Return to God: divine grace and human struggle

This resource offers 6 sessions, focusing on a range of Gospels during the Lenten season, and includes prayer, icons, art, and time for sharing, with reflections from the lived experience of being Roman Catholic, Orthodox and Protestant.

or contact for printed copies ($ 6 + postage and handling).

In 2016, the Western Church celebrates Easter on 27 March 2016 and the Orthodox Church celebrates Easter on 1 May 2016.  As a result, Lent for the Western Church begins on Ash Wednesday 10 February 2016, and Monday 14 March 2016 is the beginning of the Great Lent in the Orthodox Church. Lenten Resource Groups may, therefore, be starting any time from early February through to mid-March, and concluding from end of March to the end of April.

Forming Groups
Are you willing to be a contact person for your area and to assist groups to be formed that are as ecumenical as possible?
