Program overview

The Pacific Church Partnerships Program (PCPP) valued at $2.5 million 2019-2024, provides a unique opportunity to engage with Pacific Island church leaders on development outcomes in the Pacific region and strengthen partnerships with Australian church and church-based development leaders.

The PCPP is assisting Pacific churches to manage the ongoing impacts of COVID-19 while supporting learning and cooperation between young and senior church leaders, including through the Pacific Church Partnership Advisory Network (PCPAN) and the Pacific Australian Emerging Leaders Summit (PAELS).

With strong indigenous participation and character, the PCPAN and PAELS also promote and build on the longstanding cultural and spiritual links between Australian First Nations and Pacific peoples.
