Welcome to the WATAC website
The Story of WATAC
The story of Women and the Australian Church (WATAC) commenced in 1984 as a national project of the Religious women and men of Australia. While the WATAC organisation is Catholic by origin it is ecumenical by membership and has a commitment to working together with all churches and on an inter-faith basis.
The Vision of WATAC
WATAC’s vision is to provide a forum for those searching for an inclusive church and to enable the voice of women to be heard on global and social justice issues.
The Aims of WATAC
The aim of WATAC is to model new ways of being church, based on a "discipleship of equals".
