FOR churches

Act for Peace is the international aid agency of the National Council of Churches in Australia. We work in partnership with 2,000 churches across 19 denominations nationwide through The Christmas Bowl, International Day of Peace and other campaigns and events throughout the year.

We have the tools you need to engage and inform your congregation about the issues we work with, assisting the most conflict and disaster affected communities to be safe. From worship resources and prayer points, to activity guides for youth groups, we'll support you every step of the way.

Sign up for our Church newsletter today and join our community of Christians across Australia empowering communities around the world.
