Welcome to the Porvoo Communion website. On this website you will find information about the nature of the communion, its members, history and activities.
The Porvoo Communion is a communion of churches that have signed an agreement to "share a common life in mission and service". These churches are either Anglican or Lutheran. The Porvoo churches agree on certain fundamental issues, but Porvoo is not a new confession. The churches maintain their respective identities.
The Porvoo Communion has no central or overhead. In every church there is a contact person for Porvoo and these contact persons meet every year. Two bishops ar co-moderatiors of the Provoo Contact group, one from the Lutheran family and one from the Anglican family and two co-secretaries, also from both church families.
The Porvoo Declaration commits the churches which have signed it ‘to share a common life’ and ‘to pray for and with one another’. An important way of doing this is to pray through the year for the Porvoo churches and their Dioceses. The Prayer Diary is a list of Porvoo Communion Dioceses or church
