About Us

FoR is an international movement of people who commit themselves to active nonviolence as a way of life and as a means of personal, social, economic and political transformation. Based in the Christian tradition, we were founded in 1914, and have permanent representation at the UN.

Our current work centres around equipping our members to promote nonviolence in their own churches, to send the message that Jesus was a radical peacemaker and that Christianity is a faith of nonviolence and of love in action. FoR and its members are active in bearing witness against war and its preparation. We champion disarmament and are focusing especially on nuclear weapons and armed drones.

Another big part of our work is our support for community conflict transformation projects overseas, through our International Peacemakers’ Fund.

FoR is a membership organisation, and we welcome new members: join us.

The Fellowship of Reconciliation in England & Scotland is based at Peace House in Oxford.
