Interfaith relations

The VCC relates to a number of faith based community organisations, including:

FCCV (Faith Communities Council of Victoria)
Established in 2010, the Faith Communities Council of Victoria (FCCV) is Victoria’s umbrella multifaith body. FCCV seeks to promote positive relations between people of different faiths and greater public knowledge and mutual understanding of the teachings, customs and practices of Victoria’s diverse faith traditions.

JCCV (Jewish Community Council of Victoria Inc)
The JCCV is the peak representative body for Victorian Jewry, representing about 55 Jewish community organisations.

JCMA (Jewish Christian Muslim Association of Australia)
The JCMA is a not for profit organisation which aims to reduce racism, intolerance, bigotry and violence and the associated emotional harm through creating and providing forums for interfaith dialogue and shared experience.

CCJV (Council of Christians and Jews Victoria)
CCJV aims to educate Christians and Jews to appreciate each other’s distinctive beliefs, practices and commonalities
