About The Church Coalition

  • The Church Coalition for the Bible and Confession (Kyrklig samling kring Bibeln och bekännelsen) is an umbrella organisation for those within the Church of Sweden who wish to work together to ensure that the Bible and the Confessional Documents should be the only guiding principle within the Church (The Church Coalition Constitution, para. 1).
  • The Church Coalition was set up in 1958 as a result of an invitation issued by Bishop Bo Giertz to representatives for various traditionalist movements within the Church of Sweden, all firmly founded on the classical Christian faith, and thus a Council of Co-operation was established. This Council consists of some 30 – 40 members, who meet regularly to consult and to take decisions about the work of the Church Coalition. The Council appoints a Governing Body consisting of nine people. The chairperson of the Council also chairs the Governing Body. Currently, Fr Yngve Kalin, Hyssna is the chairperson.
  • The Association of Supporters of the Church Coalition for the Bible and Confessionis a charitable trust, whose task it is to support the work of the Church Coalition and its Council financially. The Association of Supporters is responsible for fund-raising and similar activities. Everyone who has contributed gifts and donations during the current year is invited to the Annual General Meeting. Currently, the chairperson of the Association of Supporters is Maud Lundin, Visby.
