The Network of Religious Communities (NRC) is a consolidation and expansion of the former Buffalo Area Council of Churches (1854) and the Buffalo Area Metropolitan Ministries (1975). Members include denominations/faith coordinating bodies, religious organizations and congregations serving Western New York and the Niagara Peninsula of Southern Ontario, Canada. Individuals supportive of the mission and purpose of the Network may become an auxiliary members.

The Network is a forum providing opportunities for cooperative ventures, the strengthening of our religious communities and the betterment of the community as a whole.

The archival collection of the NRC includes materials such as Board Minutes, Annual Reports, Annual Awards programs, Special Projects, Newsletters, publications, and other materials that document the NRC and its predecessor organizations, Erie County Sabbath School Association/Erie County Sunday School Association, Buffalo Federation of Churches, Buffalo Council of Churches, the Inter Church Council of Church Women, Council of Churches of Buffalo & Erie County, Buffalo Area Council of Churches, and the Buffalo Area Metropolitan Ministries.

Network of Religious Communities is a member of the Western New York Library Resources Council.
