Communities Of Hope And Compassion

Churches of Christ Vic/Tas (CCVT) is a movement of more than 130 Communities of Hope and Compassion (which may look like churches as we have known them) spread across Victoria and Tasmania, embedded in their neighbourhoods as signs, witnesses, and foretastes of the Kingdom of God. CCVT Inc is the coordinating body that exists to support these diverse Communities of Hope and Compassion in their God-given and God-driven calling to their neighbourhoods. CCVT acts with affiliated communities through three Functional Area teams.


The Leadership Functional Area team exists to support Ministers, elders, and other leaders in local communities.


The Communities Functional Area team exists to support your entire community in its neighbourhood mission.


The Operations Functional Area team exists to support the practical running of your community, including finance, insurance, property, and risk management.
