Presbyterians and Christian Reformed engage in dialogue

 — July 28, 200528 juil. 2005

The Presbyterian Church in Canada (PCC) and the Christian Reformed Church in North America (CRC) have begun a “bilateral conversation” at the invitation of the CRC. The PCC Ecumenical and Interfaith Relations committee reported to this summer’s General Assembly that the CRC have issued an invitation to “bilateral conversation, or dialogue, about issues of common interest, ministry and concern.” The conversations have begun over the past year and could lead to a more formal ecumenical partnership which the CRC calls an ‘ecclesiastical fellowship’ between the two denominations. The General Assembly of the PCC received the report and approved a recommendation to continue this dialogue.

The PCC/CRC conversations are in addition to a broader multilateral dialogue involving the two churches, together with the United Church of Canada and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada. The multilateral dialogue is characterized more as a “checking in” without a specific agenda to move towards a more formal relationship.
