Join as an organisation
why become a member organisation?
By uniting with other member organisations, churches and individuals, your organisation can present a stronger and clearer voice to government and the media. The Alliance serves to help you work together with other evangelicals to see our lives and communities changed.
The Alliance network spans more than 600 Christian organisations, promoting the diverse range of expertise that member organisations offer. Our members tell us they appreciate the Alliance's role in facilitating national and local initiatives and campaigns, and drawing together organisations and churches to address specific issues. Working with others in their field increases their impact. Member organisations have an opportunity to speak to the media on behalf of our membership, as we direct media and information enquiries to member organisations best placed to deal with them. The Alliance also provides training for organisations on how to engage with the local government and media.
Becoming part of the Alliance helps prove your organisation's credentials and connects you to the wider evangelical network.
