National Council of Churches in Korea(NCCK) Reconciliation and Reunification Committee


August 15 is celebrated as Liberation Day in Korea, the day that signifies Korea’s liberation from Japanese colonization.

In 2013, the WCC 10th General Assembly meeting in Busan, Korea passed a resolution that the churches of the world will annually observe each Sunday prior to August 15 as a “Sunday of Prayer for the Peaceful Reunification of the Korean Peninsula.”

The Reconciliation and Reunification Committee of the NCCK drafted this liturgy in the hopes that each church could apply it with reference to their own situation.

The Joint Prayer for the Peaceful Reunification of the Korean Peninsula is usually prepared by both the NCCK (South) and the Korean Christian Federation (North) together.

In 2018 the two leaders from North and South Korea met and adopted the Panmunjom Declaration and the Pyongyang Declaration. In order to fully actualize the spirit of these two declarations, NCCK declared a People’s Korea Peace Agreement and is currently engaged in a global campaign to secure 1 million Christian signatures. Please join this signature campaign with your neighbors, relatives and neighboring communities. Peace is approaching us.
