A MESSAGE FROM THE WCC

A slightly shortened version of the statement agreed by the WCC Central Committee in June.

We greet you and warmly invite you to join with us as we celebrate 70 years since the creation of the World Council of Churches…

We give thanks to the Triune God that, 70 years ago after a time of bitter war, churches remembered the prayer of Jesus ‘that they may all be one’ (John 17:21) and committed themselves to call one another to unity. Having reached our ‘three score years and ten’ (Psalm 90:10) we celebrate that so much has been given and received among us, while recognising that there is more yet to come. In our anniversary year, we airm that we will continue to move together on a journey that has its beginning in the call of God to a pilgrim people and its end in the unity of the whole creation.
