Council for World Mission

For the World Mission Council, see Church of Scotland.

The Council for World Mission (CWM) is a worldwide community of Christian churches. The 31 members share their resources of money, people, skills and insights to carry out their missionary work.

CWM was established in 1977 in its present form. It grew out of the London Missionary Society (LMS, founded 1795), the Commonwealth (Colonial) Missionary Society (1836) and the (English) Presbyterian Board of Missions (1847). Most member churches have backgrounds in the Reformed tradition. Many are united churches.

The Council was created as an experiment in a new kind of to operate the 'Face to Face' program in the Holy Land.[1]

The organisation has 31 members in: the Pacific (9), Europe (5), East Asia (6), Southern Africa and the Indian Ocean (5), South Asia (4), and the Caribbean (2).

The Council for World Mission has relocated its secretariat from London to Singapore, and have held its Opening Worship for the Council Meeting on the 28th of October 2012 in Glory Presbyterian Church, Singapore.
