EDIT 10/12/2015: Royal Commission’s report – The Royal Commission Report on Houston, CLC/Hillsong & the AOG/ACC
The ‘Royal Commission into institutional responses to child sexual abuse‘ in 2014 investigated Hills/Sydney Christian Life Centre (renamed to Hillsong) and the Australian Assemblies of God (renamed to Australian Christian Churches) for potentially covering up paedophilia.
The Royal Commission (RC) launched their investigations (Case Study 18) at the beginning of October, 2014, exposing conflicts of interest, shortcomings and mismanagement by the AOG/ACC executive and its then President, Brian Houston, when handling the Frank Houston child sex abuse allegations.
This is a resource to help people grasp some of the complications of the RC’s investigation. This article provides ‘fact files’ and articles we have covered so far to make this case easier to understand.

“AHA has not been helped. We are hearing unsubstantiated
rumours that they want to take action. We can also confirm
that more evidence has been handed into the Royal
Commission questioning Houston’s testimony.”
Earlier in the year Chris Rosebrough said on his podcast that his contacts in Sydney, aka you, had told him that the RC report on Hillsong was going to be released in mid July. That hasn’t happened. So how accurate are these current ‘rumours’ and ‘conformations’?
What do you mean by ‘they want to take action’?
