Relations - We Are One In Christ (Galatians 3:28)

Interdenominational Relations

Unity between the Denominations in Sri Lanka is vital for our witness in a community that is torn apart with many divisions.

  • We still maintain our membership with National Christian Council of Sri Lnaka (NCCSL) and National Christian Evangelical Alliance of Sri Lanka (NCEASL). The Task Force for Christian Unity was formed by the NCCSL with its member churches in order to start a fresh journey towards church union.
  • Since the confederation service held on the 30th November 2008, the Task Force for Christian Unity is now replaced by the Council of the Confederation of Christian Churches (CCCC). At present the CCCC is working towards a Mutual Recognition of Ministries which will evetually lead to more partnerships in mission and acceptance of each other.

International Relations

The CRCSL enjoys a wide range of international relationships with brothers and sisters of the Reformed Tradition.

  • The World Communion of the Reformed Churches (WCRC) is a newly emerging worldwide, ecumenical body of churches of Reformed and Presbyterian family formed by the merging of the World Alliance of Reformed Churches (WARC) and the Reformed Ecumenical Council (REC). Together, they will represent nearly 250 member churches and over 80 million Christians worldwide.
  • The ministers of CRCSL have considered during the recent past to form a link with the World Reformed Fellowship (WRF) which is another ecumenical Christian body which promotes unity between conservative reformed churches around the world. It was formed through the union of the World Fellowship of Reformed Churches (WFRC) and the International Reformed Fellowship (IRF).
