The Canadian Council of Churches (CCC) is the largest ecumenical body in Canada. As a member of CCC, CBOQ can appoint representatives to the commissions and committees that carry out the work of the CCC. Currently, there are openings for CBOQ representation in two areas.
The Commission on Faith and Witness engages churches in theological study in order to increase an understanding of the faith we hold in common and to provide an ecumenical witness to Christ’s mission in the world. The purpose of the Commission is to provide a meeting place, a lively and fertile ground for reflection and work, among Christians of different families. Together they work to reflect theologically on matters of concern in our own day, and on questions of historical interest to the churches. As a member of CCC, CBOQ can appoint two members to the Commission on Faith and Witness.
Another place to serve is on the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity Writing Committee. The roots of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity go back to the 1800s; it is one of the oldest, most widely observed ecumenical events in the world. CBOQ can appoint one member to the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity Writing Committee.
If you are interested in exploring the possibility of serving in either of these two areas, please contact Melody Currier at ac.tsitpabnull@reirrucm or 416-620-2959 for further information.
