Mennonite Church Canada joins Canadian Council of Churches

 — July 21, 200521 juil. 2005

An official application for membership in the Canadian Council of Churches from Mennonite Church Canada was enthusiastically received and unanimously approved by the other member churches of the CCC. This brings the membership of the Canadian Council of Churches up to twenty traditions, including Anglican, Roman Catholic, Protestant and Eastern and Oriental Orthodox churches. Mennonite Church Canada will enrich the Canadian Council of Churches’ forum with its long history as a peace church, its depth of theology, its commitment to Scripture and its passion for social justice, as CCC member churches continue to witness together in such areas as health care, opposition to Ballistic Missile Defence, the theology of hope and suffering, the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, theological anthropology, inter-faith dialogue, ecumenism, etc.
