2025 General Council

27th General Council: 14-23 October 2025:
Chiang Mai, Thailand

Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight and the sin that clings so closely, and let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us. —Hebrews 12:1 (NRSV)

The 27th General Council of the World Communion of Reformed Churches will take place in Chiang Mai, Thailand, in October 2025, hosted by the Church of Christ in Thailand with support from other Asian members.

Postponed a year due to the COVID pandemic, the 2025 General Council comes in a year of significance for the Communion, the 150th anniversary of our founding as the “Alliance of the Reformed Churches throughout the World holding the Presbyterian System.” We look forward to marking this anniversary while also moving into a post-pandemic world in which the challenges before us are as great as ever.

The Council’s theme, “Persevere in Your Witness” (inspired by Hebrews 12:1), will guide our gathering and is a strong biblical call to remain true to the faith we have in Jesus Christ and continue to strive for the promise of an abundant life for all.

We remain committed to the gender balance called for by the 2010 Uniting General Council and achieved at the 2017 General Council.
