Quick Reference

An organization created in 1942 to further common Christian action and promote the cause of unity among the Churches of Great Britain and Ireland. On the foundation of the World Council of Churches in 1948, it became an ‘Associated Council’. Its membership increased over the years, and from 1965 the RCs sent observers to its meetings. In 1990 it was succeeded by the Council of Churches for Britain and Ireland, now Churches Together. See also Christian Aid.
