The Council of Churches in NSW first met in 1924 as a group of representatives of major denominations: Church of England, Presbyterian, Methodist, Congregational, Baptist, Church of Christ, Society of Friends and Salvation Army. Their aim was to act in the interests of public morality and on behalf of the causes that are common to Christian churches. In 1932 they established the radio station 2CH.
The Council was incorporated in 1998 to be the successor of the Council of Churches in NSW (an unincorporated association).
