The Council for World Mission is a worldwide partnership of Christian churches. The 32 members are committed to sharing their resources of money, people, skills and insights globally to carry out God’s mission locally. CWM was created in 1977 and incorporates the London Missionary Society (1795), the Commonwealth Missionary Society (1836) and the (English) Presbyterian Board of Missions (1847).
Our values are aspirational, describing both the way CWM does work and the way CWM desires to work (both the now and the not yet). These values are relevant both to how members within CWM should relate to one another, and how the organisation of CWM (including the Secretariat, Assembly, and other functions) should operate. Our organisational values are:
- Justice in relationships
- Mutuality, equality and interdependence
- Generosity of spirit
- Unity in diversity
