Welcome to the Victorian Council of Churches

The Victorian Council of Churches gathers together in pilgrimage churches which:

  • confess the Lord Jesus Christ as God and Saviour according to the Scriptures;
  • seek to fulfil together their common calling to the glory of the one God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit;
  • commit themselves to deepen their relationship with each other in order to express more visibly the unity willed by Christ for his church;
  • work together towards the fulfilment of their common mission of witness, proclamation and service.

We acknowledge the Traditional Owners and Custodians of Country throughout Australia and acknowledge their continuing connection to land, waters and community. We pay our respects to the people, the cultures and the Elders past, present and emerging.

Referendum Resources

NEW: Preaching from the Heart is a PDF of sermons on the Statement from the Heart and Voice with thanks to John Bottomley and a range of theologians. This is an excellent resource for contemplation leading up to the referendum. It is a project of the Creative Ministries Network congregation in response to the invitation from the Statement from the Heart to join Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people on a movement of the Australian people to a better future. You will hear God’s unequivocal ‘yes’ to the Statement from the Heart in the twenty sermons from Indigenous and settler preachers as they reflect on what this journey means for churches and the nation.
