Our Fellowships

While the six standing Committees contribute to the mission and ministry of the CCCAS by carrying out the resolutions ratified by the General Assembly, there are also five auxiliary Fellowships (Mafutaga) who contribute in their own unique way. 

There is the Women’s General fellowship (Mafutaga Aoao a Tina), the largest of all the fellowships; the Christian Endeavor’s Fellowship (Mafutaga ‘Au Taumafai), the Prayer Watchers’ Fellowship (Mafutaga ‘Au Leoleo), the Deaconate General Fellowship (Mafutaga Aoao a Tiakono), and the Youth General Fellowship (Mafutaga a Tupulaga Talavou).  Sanctioned and recognized by the General Assembly, each of these auxiliary fellowships play an important part in the mission and ministry of the CCCAS.
