ACCCR works to bring about the Church we dream of – a Christ-like Church. Everyone involved gives their time and effort voluntarily.

The Catholic Church belongs to all of us. But the Church is dying and people are walking away.

For our work to continue, we need resources to pay for events as we build on last year’s convocations and publications. Activities this year will support engagement at all levels in the context of the Plenary Council 2nd Assembly and the Pope’s Synod on Synodality. We are promoting renewal at grassroots level while at the same time engaging with PC members and bishops to change structures.

Please help us to continue building the Church Jesus would have wanted, a Church that actualises all he envisaged.

We appreciate your generosity and support.

Be blessed

Eleanor Flynn and Peter Johnstone, ACCCR Co-conveners
