Welcome to the website of the Interchurch Families International Network.

(Feature article can be found below.)

This site provides rich resources for the journey to Chrtistian unity which interchurch families live. Of these, the Journal, produced over a period of more than 10 years, and reflecting the experiences of interchurch families and the theology which undergirds their journey, must be counted among the most valuable.

The Interchurch Families International Discussion Group enables us to share joys and sorrows, to discuss ways of dealing with immediate issues which arise as a consequence of living our marital unity within churches which are divided.  Feel free to join.

Enjoy and, if you have comments or questions, please contact me, Ray Temmerman, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..


Australian Interchurch Families

We have been meeting in groups in different parts of our country for many years, but few of our groups had met each other. This was a real opportunity for us to join together and to meet our church leaders to discuss the joys and possibilities, as well as the tensions, of our interchurch family life. In a similar way to when the American interchurch family groups met in Virginia Beach in 1996, and the Canadian groups in Edmonton in 2001, we attracted to the conference people engaged in ecumenism in our own country, raised the profile of couples who marry across church boundaries, and offered our experience in the work of moving forward together on the Christian journey.

Join us, and share in the dream.
