The World Council of Churches WCC

A worldwide community of churches in search of uni-ty, common witness and service

The PCS is a founding member of the World Council of Churches (WCC). Since then, numerous personalities from the Reformed churches in Switzerland have been actively involved in the work of the WCC: Lukas Vischer, who passed away in 2008, Adolf Keller, and Jacques Matthey are among the most well-known in recent times.

The PCS is currently represented in the WCC Central Committee by Rev. Rita Famos, President of the PCS. The last Assembly took place in Karlsruhe from 31 August to 8 September 2022. The theme of the Assembly is: ‘Christ’s love moves the world to reconciliation and unity’.
