Congregationalists have always emphasised the importance of good theological reflection on how they operate as a church, in mission, and in many other aspects of faith. To help facilitate
that dialog the ICF has a Theological Commission.
The purpose and mission of the Theological Commission of the International Congregational Fellowship is to promote and provide the means for the development of theological reflection and expression in the context of the living Congregational Way.
The ICFTC seeks to create links with Congregational bodies in different parts of the world. At present we are establishing links between Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay, the United Kingdom and the United States of America. We hope to share training material and expertise. We are also trying to build up partnerships with training colleges in Myanmar.
The Commission also publishes a journal and holds periodic seminars and symposia.
For more information about the Theological Commission contact the Rev. Dr. Janet Wootton
