Welcome from the president
Who we are
The Tasmanian Council of Churches (TCC) is a fellowship of Christian Churches in Tasmania committed to the promotion of Christian unity. The TCC is an autonomous body with policies decided by the six Member Churches.
TCC is affiliated with the National Council of Churches in Australia (NCCA), and maintains good relationships with the other State Ecumenical Bodies around Australia, as well as the Christian Council of Asia (CCA) The Tasmanian Council of Churches was one of the first State Ecumenical Bodies to be established beginning in 1946.
This was at a time when Christians around the world were given a new vision of Christian unity through the formation of the World Council of Churches (in the period 1937-1948). Another "first" for the TCC is that in 1970 we became the first ecumenical council in Australia (and one of the first in the world) in which the Roman Catholic Church is a full member....
The TCC is made up of seven Member Churches. The Member Churches of the TCC are:
- Anglican Church of Australia (Diocese of Tasmania)
- Baptist Churches of Tasmania
- Roman Catholic Church (Archdiocese of Hobart)
- Religious Society of Friends - Quakers (Tasmania Regional Meeting)
- The Salvation Army (Tasmanian Command)
- Uniting Church in Australia (Synod of Victoria & Tasmania)
The Associate Member Church congregations are:
- Hobart City Church of Christ
- Caveside Church of Christ
Two Commissions are responsible for carrying out much of the work of the TCC. These are the Commissions on:
- Christian Ministry in State Schools (CMISS)
- Christian World Service (CWS)
National Council of Churches in Australia (NCCA)
