International work

A short presentation of the Church of Sweden´s international work.


Collaborating and cooperating with other churches and organisations is at the core of the Church of Sweden´s international mission.  As a church, we are part of the worldwide community of churches.

By working with local organisations and churches, we are better able to contribute to long-term sustainable development in the contexts in which our partner organisations operate. 

Global consulation on Social Protection and Diakonia

In January 2017 Church of Sweden arranged a global, ecumenical consultation in Sigtuna. People from twenty countries gathered to discuss churches’ and faith based actors’ role and voice in the issue of social protection - and how they should relate this to the responsibility of States to fulfil everyone´s right to social protection.

Theme for the days: Social Protection in a Time of Rising Inequality – The role of Diakonia.

You can read the theological statement from the consultation here: Diakonia in the Time of Inequality – Sigtuna Statement on Theology, Tax and Social Protection. (pdf, 12 pages)

And watch our film: Social Protection – Churches called to action for Just Society (5:17min).
