Welcome to ACC

We're all for raising healthy pastors and leaders!


The ACC New South Wales & ACT State Executive is passionate about seeing healthy pastors and leaders. We believe healthy pastors and leaders create healthy families churches and communities.

Being a pastor or leader of a church has always been a challenging vocation, however there are a number of issues in our modern world that are making good men and women feel unsustainable in their pastor or leadership roles. Senior leaders face a complexity of roles cultural pressures and lack of margin for self-care.



Pastor’s Health Hotline

We know this last season has been a challenge, so as a State Executive we wanted to invest in your emotional and spiritual health.
So, with this in mind, we have set up a Pastors’ Health Hotline (PHH). If you call this number 02 4075 2710, Ps Marilyn Brett will be available to talk to you and help you find the right support. Marilyn is a coach, mentor and has pastored  along with her husband for 35 years.
Perhaps you need a debrief, a pastoral visit, information about counselling, supervision or mentoring – we want to help you find the best way forward.
Put this number in your phone, on your fridge or share it with a friend .
We love you, we believe in you and we know that when we have a safe place to talk, we stay healthy.

It happens to all of us! We build for months, years and sometimes decades with people in our churches.
