Information Technology (IT) is a division of the Finance & Administration Department. We are committed to developing systems and processes to support rapid, reliable and effective sharing of information across the Lutheran Church of Australia (LCA).
Wherever you are in Australia or New Zealand – or anywhere in the world – we want you to have access to the wide range of resources produced by our LCA agencies, in order to support your own local mission and ministry.
Increasingly we are also providing IT advice and support for congregations, and some of these services are listed below.
Policies and supporting documents
The General Church Council of the LCA has established a policy for the use of information and communication technology throughout the whole of the LCA, including its districts, congregations and agencies. The ICT Advisory Committee has developed (and is developing) supporting documents.
Donated and discounted software
The LCA has made arrangements with business partners to supply products and services to LCA congregations and agencies at reduced prices.
All Microsoft software, including Windows, Office (Access, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint, Word, Publisher) etc
Eligible organisations: LCA national and district offices, congregation/parish offices, community care services and educational institutions
Eligible individuals: Paid and volunteer workers who use their computer for church work purposes. Licenses for lay people will be issued to the particular congregation rather than to the individual. Orders for lay people must come via the congregation and be paid for by the congregation
