The Community of Christ Our Hope
The Most Reverend Peter Johnson
Archbishop Peter is the N.S.W. representative Archbishop for ACoA.
Christ Our Hope Community is an intentional network of Companions, inspired by the Celtic Monastic Tradition within the Australian Church of Antioch – one of many global Independent Catholic Churches – within the Old Catholic Tradition.
As a Faith Community, it sees itself as part of a wider church movement, called by the Gospel Mandate of Jesus Christ, to be a catalyst for “renewal and reform” within the life of the People of God.
Within the Catholic Tradition, therefore, we articulate who we are, as we take our place within the Church Universal – the wider Church Community of Jesus Christ.
In keeping with our Celtic Tradition, newly established “Wells” were developed to encourage greater spiritual ownership of the “domestic church”. Each Well now has a Custodian-Guardian. Wells were opened up and developed not only in the Sydney geographic area but also The Blue Mountains, Central Coast, and rural New England areas.
