Christian Communions and Councils

Each denomination has been coded by its membership of various Christian communions and councils and this data is now available to subscribers.

Christian Communions are made up of denominations with a similar ecclesiastical tradition, while Christian Councils include all participant churches at a given geographic level (world, continental, regional or national).

Subscribers can access the data on the Denominations home page through a known denomination, or through the section which lists the coded Communions and Councils.

Either pick a communion and drill to list its denominations, or pick a denomination and click to see its Communions and Councils.
