Preamble
The story of the International Ecumenical Fellowship (IEF) is the story of pilgrims from many places, journeying together towards the same destination – the renewal and unity of the Christian Church.
In the more than forty years of our history, our story has been one of a community of largely grassroots Christians being inspired and encouraged to work, in our own localities, for Christian unity.
Our inspiration has been the vision and the experience of living today the Church of tomorrow. Our vision has been shaped by events and personalities, but the experience has been everyone’s.
It is significant that IEF’s name includes the word fellowship: we are a koinonia, a community bound together by the Holy Spirit.
This presentation introduces IEF and what makes us distinctive, in the hope that you will wish to share our faith journey.
