Interfaith and Interchurch - Steeples of non-Christain Faith Churches Evangelical Christians in Canada are finding opportunity to work collaboratively with people from other Christian traditions and with those from non-Christian faith traditions as well. Such collaboration often shows up in coalitions around social issues, such as euthanasia and palliative care.
Going back to the late 1980’s Roman Catholics have been frequent partners for Evangelicals, especially around sanctity of human life issues (abortion, reproductive technologies, euthanasia). In 2011 the EFC established the Roman Catholic-Evangelical Dialogue, together with the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops. The Dialogue members meet two times per year to pray together, study doctrinal similarities and differences, and plan events that draw more people into the conversation.
The EFC also participates in the Canadian Interfaith Conversation, which was established in 2012 to provide a forum for people from various faith traditions who believe that religious communities play a positive role in Canadian society and need the freedom to do so. Conversation between people of faith – and also with those who claim no religious allegiance – is essential to advocating for religion in Canadian public life.
