Within the hierarchy of the Church of Scientology is a network of Continental Liaison Offices (CLOs) responsible for coordinating Scientology activities on regional and local levels. These offices serve to support the actions of local Churches, missions and groups in their respective areas and serve as a coordinating and rallying point for all Scientology activities associated with those Churches. They also see to the well-being of organizations and groups in their zones. In this way, the activities of Churches, missions, field auditors and other related groups integrate and ultimately result in spiritual advancement for all Scientologists in their continental region.

Ecclesiastical management liaison offices are maintained in Toronto for Canada; Copenhagen for Europe; New York City for the Eastern United States; Los Angeles for the Western United States; Sydney for Australia, New Zealand and Japan; Mexico City for Latin America; Johannesburg for South Africa and at Saint Hill Manor in Sussex, England, for the United Kingdom.
