Appointments to SA Council of Churches: Q&A and Constitution
Why do we have a Council of Churches in South Australia? What is the current focus for SACC? What is the purpose of General Council? What can newly appointed members expect to assist them in participating and in fulfilling their role meaningfully? And more!
Since being [re]formed in 2008, each of the three SACC Standing Committees have continued to change focus, energy and vision on account of various factors. Earlier this year, each committee, in consultation with the Executive Committee, considered the direction of their responsibility for the various Priorities, with reference to 2015 Onwards, to which many people contributed last year.
The result is a description of key focal areas and relationships for 2016-2018, plus a new name for each of the three Standing Committees:
