The Community of Christ the King (CCK) is an Anglican religious order of Benedictine nuns near Wangaratta, Victoria, Australia. Founded in 1993, this enclosed and contemplative order is under the jurisdiction of the Anglican Church of Australia. The convent operates guest and retreat facilities and the sisters provide a ministry of spiritual direction.

The convent is located at the foot of the Warby Ranges in Victoria, Australia. The growing of produce provides some level of self-sufficiency and generates the labour needed to live the Rule of St Benedict. Silent retreats are held at the convent for visitors. The Revd Mother has been Rita Mary CCK since 31 July 1997.
