Biographical / Historical

The British Council of Churches was formed in 1942. Most of the Anglican and Protestant churches in the British Isles are members of the council, as well as some interdenominational groups including the YMCA [Young Men's Christian Association] and the YWCA [Young Women's Christian Association]. The Greek Orthodox church joined the council in 1965.

The council has several departments that carry out cooperative work for the churches in various areas, including youth work and social welfare. It is especially concerned with ecumenical activities and Christian unity.
