ACTA is a movement built from below by clergy and laity alike in every diocese in England and Wales. It exists to give those people an effective voice. It aims to establish and promote ways of dialogue within a hierarchically structured people’s Church.
ACTA is committed to the reforms of the Second Vatican Council as the only way forward for mission to modern society. It is not a small chapel of selected followers; it sees the Church as a “big tent”, with open doors. As a free and representative association of believers, it seeks to liberate their expertise, so as to bring added energy and witness to the Church in the world.

A Call To Action: We are a group of Catholics, some of whom are ordained, brought together by our love of Christ's church and our anxiety about its future. Still inspired by the Second Vatican Council we want to contribute fully to the life of our church so that we may be a more effective sign of the Kingdom of God. To do this, we believe that an atmosphere of openness and dialogue both with each other and with our bishops needs developing. We desire to help create a climate of trust and respect for all where this dialogue may be fostered.
