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.
and I am in you,
may they also be in us,
so that the world may believe
that you have sent me.
Our Vision is to act and work together for a common witness to the World. Several churches in South Australia make up the membership of SACC. A number of committees have responsibility for developing the vision, direction and review of the priorities.
If you want to get to know us, please give us a call and we'd be delighted to hear from you and to share information about the work of ecumenism. You can go to our Facebook page to receive updates and to read our E-News.
