The Anglican Catholic Church in Australia (ACCA) is the regional jurisdiction of the Traditional Anglican Communion for most of Australia and also provides episcopal oversight for New Zealand and Japan. The Church of Torres Strait has jurisdiction in Queensland from the Torres Strait islands to just south of Townsville, as well as personal jurisdiction over Torres Strait Islanders throughout Australia.
The former Bishop Ordinary of the ACCA, John Hepworth, was also the Primate of the Traditional Anglican Communion.
In February 2010, the Anglican Catholic Church in Australia, along with Forward in Faith Australia, filed a petition to the Roman Catholic Church's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith in the Vatican to join the Roman Catholic Church as a personal ordinariate under the apostolic constitution Anglicanorum Coetibus. The Church of Torres Strait submitted a similar but separate proposal in May 2010.
The ACCA is not affiliated with the Anglican Catholic Church Original Province, Missionary Diocese of Australia & New Zealand (www.accdanz.org)
