In September 1992 representatives of the Congregational Churches in New South Wales and Queensland which had continued to follow the Congregational Way after the formation of the Uniting Church in Australia in 1977, resolved to establish the Congregational Federation of Australia (CFA) as successor to the former Congregational Union of Australia (CUA). The Federation links in fellowship churches in the States of New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria, four Samoan churches in New Zealand not affiliated to the Congregational Union of New Zealand and the Congregational Church of India, the Congregational Church in the Marshall Islands and the Congregational Church of Myanmar.
 

The CFA is a member of the New South Wales Ecumenical Coucil and of Queensland Churches Together (QCF). The Federation is also linked to the World Council of Churches through its membership in the National Council of Churches in Australia.

Organisationstruktur
In the New Testament the word "church" is applied only to individual congregations and to the Church Universal. There is no suggestion that it can be applied to a particular group of congregations or to a national component of the Church Universal. Australian Congregationalists continue to apply this principle which is expressed in two seminal basic statements: the Cambridge (Massechusetts) Platform of 1648 and the Savoy Declaration of 1658.
The Congregational Federation of Australia is constituted as a Federation of the Congregational associations in each of the respective States of the Commonwealth of Australia and a small association in New Zealand for the purpose of dealing with matters of common concern and of creating and fostering closer unity and co-operation between and co-ordinating the work of the constituent State bodies.
An Assembly is held every two years alternating from State to State. The Assembly appoint the Executive Committee which consists of the officers - the Moderator, General Secretary, Registrar and Historian - and three members appointed by each constituent association. The Executive Committee is required to give effect to the decisions of the Assembly and to refer such matters as it may deem fit to the State associations for consideration and action.
