1. What is Act for Peace?
Act for Peace is the international aid agency of the National Council of Churches in Australia (NCCA). Previously this agency was known as Christian World Service. Act for Peace is governed by the NCCA Christian World Service Commission.
2. Why the choice of name?
The Bible calls us all to act for peace. The name Act for Peace reflects our focus on working in conflict-affected areas. By supporting Act for Peace, churches and individuals across Australia help to reduce poverty, prevent conflict, protect refugees and empower communities. Thus they help build the foundations of peace.
3. What is the Christmas Bowl?
The Christmas Bowl is the annual appeal of Act for Peace. It has been supporting Act for Peace's project partners around the world for more than 60 years, and has raised more than $100 million to help people in some of the world's most conflict-affected countries, including South Sudan, Burma/Myanmar, Ethiopia and Iraq.

4. What are Act for Peace Partners?
Act for Peace Partners
(previously known as Partners4Peace) are supporters who give regularly to Act for Peace. Their gifts are allocated to a different project partner each month and supporters receive a monthly Peace Mail report. By giving monthly, Act for Peace Partners help Act for Peace to budget with much greater certainty. This allows project partners to confidently launch aid and development projects, hire specialist staff, order equipment and supplies and effectively deliver much-needed assistance to communities affected by conflict and violence. Regular giving also reduces administration costs, so more funds go to support the work of our project partners. If you would like to become an Act for Peace Partner, please call 1800 025 101
