The Congregational Federation of Australia and New Zealand (CFANZ) is a community of faith which seeks to respond

to the Gospel of Jesus Christ in word and deed. The Federation comprises those Congregational Churches in Australia

which are not affiliated with the evangelical Fellowship of Congregational Churches, the FCC,

and those Churches in New Zealand which are not affiliated with the Congregational Union of New Zealand (CUNZ).


Though one of the smaller "Mainstream" Christian denominations in both countries, the Federation stands in

the historic Reformed Tradition whose members make up the largest single strand of Protestantism

with more than seventy million members world-wide.

Along with other Reformed Churches the Federation holds to the Trinitarian Faith exppressed in the historic Christian Creeds

and finds supreme authority for faith and conduct in the Word of God, the Bible, discerned under the guidance of the Holy Spirit.


Fellowship is one of the hallmarks of the "Congregational Way". It may be said that  "Faith, Freedom and Fellowship"

is our motto.

One of the classic definitions of Congregationalism holds that it is constituted by "an ellipse with two focii these being

(1) the independence of the local Church and (2)  "Churches in fellowship with one another".


Although in fellowship with other Congregational Churches throughout the world through membership of the

International Congregational Fellowship, the Federation has a major commitment to ecumenism and mission and

therefore enjoys fellowship with others of the Christian Church in Australia and New Zealand through the

National Council of Churches in Australia and beyond each country through the World Communion of Reformeed Churches.
