  A New Anglican UN Office in Geneva

The opening of a Geneva office in April 2007 hails a new phase for Anglican representation at the United Nations.  Funded through a grant from the Anglican Communion, the office is a physical sign of Anglican commitment to the international humanitarian issues that are central to UN work in Geneva.

The office has grown out of the work of the Anglican-UN Geneva Committee group which, in support of the Anglican Communion Observer in New York, aims to enhance the visibility of the Anglican Communion at the UN.  It is hoped that the new office, with a prime location in the Ecumenical Centre – home to the World Council of Churches - and near to the main UN buildings, will facilitate further communication between the Anglican Communion and Geneva-based UN organisations. 

The members of the Anglican-UN Geneva Committee will continue to oversee and implement the work of the Anglican UN Office in Geneva, under the guidance of the Observer.  They are: Trevor Davies, Michael French, Paul Holley, Helena Mbele-Mbong and John Taylor.  In addition, a volunteer, Ruth Lee, will provide administrative and communications support on a weekly basis.
