Profiles of all member churches
As of October 2016, the homepage of the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Christlicher Kirchen in der Schweiz (Association of Christian Churches in Switzerland) will include profiles of all member churches, as well as profiles of churches with guest status.
Included in summary form will be information on each church’s articles of faith and ecumenical activities, and the possibilities and limits of their collaboration with other church bodies. Topics may include their stance on mixed-faith marriages, joint worship with other churches, participation in the Eucharist/communion, as well as the use of church facilities. The purpose of these texts is to facilitate ecumenical cooperation by clarifying each church’s distinctive features and pointing out the commonalities of member churches. These profiles can be found in German, French (in part at a later date), and in some cases English under www.agck.ch (About us/).
The president of the AGCK.CH, Bishop Harald Rein, states: “Ecumenism for me means approaching and understanding one another more and more.”
