FWCC engages in ecumenical and interfaith activity at all levels on behalf of Friends worldwide. We believe it is critical to engage in interfaith and ecumenical work to live out our faith and take action on our concerns in the world. We do this in a number of ways. For example, FWCC participates in the Christian World Communions Conference of General Secretaries, which brings leaders of Christian communions with a global presence together to bring a collective faith perspective to challenging religious problems and to work toward Christian unity around the world.
In October 2019 Gretchen Castle, the former FWCC General Secretary, was appointed chair of the CWC, a first Quaker and first female appointment.
Our sustainability programme manager, Susanna Mattingly, also engages in faith networks for the sustainability programme.
