Interchurch Relations Committee

The Interchurch Relations Committee is responsible for promoting inter-church working locally and nationally with Local Ecumenical Partnerships, Action of Churches together in Scotland (ACTS) and Churches together in Britain and Ireland (CTBI).

The committee also has wider relationships with the Anglican Communion, the Porvoo Communion, the Reuilly Agreement, the Meissen Commission and the World Council of Churches.

God’s Gift and Call to Unity

Each Assembly of the World Council of Churches produces a Unity Statement – a short reflection on the unity of the Church as both God’s gift and God’s calling. It is an opportunity for the member churches of the World Council to reflect on progress made on the ecumenical journey to reaffirm our commitment to one another as we travel on towards that goal.
