The National Centre for Evangelisation acts as a national base for Catholic evangelisation, and seeks to liaise with different dioceses and groups within the Catholic Church in Australia that are involved in sharing the Good News. From this base, it shares information about successful outreach initiatives around the country, including diocesan-based agencies for the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults, for those wanting to formalise their relationship with the Catholic Church. It also seeks to give dioceses and groups access to sufficient resources and training opportunities to empower and encourage them in effective evangelisation.
It is important to note, however, that the National Centre for Evangelisation does not claim to be the only evangeliser, and truly it is incapable of doing all the evangelisation work that there is to be done. Its purpose however, is to connect with and support groups who are already getting their hands dirty with the work of evangelisation, to provide resources to assist in the work of evangelisation and to encourage and empower others to take up that work alongside them.
