The Association of Christian Community Churches in Victoria and Tasmania (CCCVaT)
is a movement of like-minded local churches, predominantly of a Christian Brethren heritage, that have united under a common vision and mission, set of beliefs and core values. The movement is driven by the Great Commission of Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:18-20), and is committed to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all people and to provide a ministry of discipleship for each new believer, that they will become all that God has designed them to be.
core objective is to aid and assist local churches to more effectively reach and serve church and un-churched communities, develop ministry capacity and make disciples of Jesus. Through networking, leveraging of resources and fostering a greater sense of belonging, the movement continues to grow into a mutually supportive Kingdom-advancing network of churches that has ever increasing capacity to impact all in our circle of influence with the Good News of Jesus.
