Led by the Bishop of Islington, the Rt Revd Ric Thorpe, CCX helps equip and resource the Church to reach new people, in new and renewed ways with the good news of Jesus Christ.

The following resources have been assembled by Bishop Ric to compliment his visit to friends and networks across Australia. You will also find copies of presentations shared during his March-April 2023 trip. If you’d like to find out more about the work of CCX and how we could support you, contact us at

Estates Mission

Championing the Church across estates, planting and supporting estate church communities
