Ecumenical Institute of Bossey

The Ecumenical Institute at Bossey is the international centre for encounter, dialogue and formation of the World Council of Churches. Your gift will assist to provide scholarships for students and researchers from around the world and to enable the work of the institute.

The Ecumenical Institute at Bossey is the international centre for encounter, dialogue and formation of the World Council of Churches. Founded in 1946, the Institute brings together people from diverse churches, cultures and backgrounds for ecumenical learning, academic study and personal exchange.

The Ecumenical Institute's mission is to educate and form church leaders, both clergy and lay, for service in parishes, classrooms and ecumenical centres around the world. The Ecumenical Institute plays a major role in shaping ecumenical thought through intercultural and interconfessional encounter, through academic study in residential programmes and through common worship and life in community.

Each year, the Ecumenical Institute welcomes students and researchers from around the world specializing in ecumenical theology, missiology and social ethics. The Ecumenical Institute is a place that strengthens, transforms and enhances identities. Through study and research, through life and encounter, through dialogue within a multicultural and multiconfessional community, people come to better understand and appreciate their own tradition and identity, thereby enriching it with new perspectives. The Institute prepares people to be agents of reconciliation, mutual respect and unity among Christians and with all God's people.

The Ecumenical Institute relies on voluntary donations to carry out its activity of fostering dialogue and ecumenical formation across confessional and cultural frontiers. Your gift will assist Bossey to provide scholarships for students and researchers from around the world and to enable the work of the Institute. Your donation will make an important difference to our mission.
