World Reformed Fellowship


World Reformed Fellowship

The World Reformed Fellowship is an ecumenical Christian body which promotes unity between conservative Reformed churches around the world.

It was formed on 2000-10-24 through the union of two organizations, the World Fellowship of Reformed Churches (WFRC) and the International Reformed Fellowship (IRF).

It is similar in theology to the International Conference of Reformed Churches and more conservative than the World Alliance of Reformed Churches and Reformed Ecumenical Council.
