SAMARBEID MELLOM FELLOWSHIP OF CHRISTIAN COUNCILS IN SOUTHERN AFRICA (FOCCISA) OG KIRKER I NORDEN

Helt siden apartheidtiden i Sør-Afrika har det vært samarbeid mellom kirker i Norden og det sørlige Afrika.  Til å begynne var man samlet i kampen mot apartheid.  Samarbeidet har fortsatt med en utvidet målsetting:

  1. Build and strengthen the fellowship between the Churches in the two regions.
  2. Strengthen each other in evangelism and in joint theological reflection, contextualizing the Gospel to culture and society.
  3. Stimulate a culture of mutual understanding, commitment, accountability, transparency and respect through sharing of experiences, values and spirituality as Christians and human beings.
  4. Contribute to development of Human Resources in the two regions through capacity building and increased sharing of information.
  5. Work towards a culture of non-violence and human dignity advocating for democratic processes and human rights and for the elimination of racism, xenophobia, and ethnicity.
  6. Participate in common strategies on issues of globalisation for the eradication of poverty and HIV/AIDS.

I de senere årene har samarbeidet særlig dreid seg om pkt 6 i målsettingen. Se egne sider om "One Body".
