Consultation on Church Union

Quick Reference


A Church union negotiating committee of the American Churches of the Protestant and Anglican traditions. Set up in 1962, in 1970 it put forward a draft Plan of Union, envisaging organic unity among the Churches involved. The responses to this proposal led the participating Churches to redefine their goal as a relationship of full communion among the various traditions. In 2002 they formed ‘Churches Uniting in Christ’, recognising the authenticity of each, but leaving negotiations over any reconciliation of ministries for the future.

Subjects: Christianity.
