DIAKONIA offers an international and ecumenical community of diaconal friendship, connecting us in diversity and commonality. 

DIAKONIA broadens our worldview and deepens our sense of diaconal vocation.  

DIAKONIA reminds the church of God’s call to service, justice, compassion, and peace for creation, and assists us in living out our ministries in the world with vision and hope. 

The church is not the church without diakonia.


World Assembly Update

The plans to hold the DWF Assembly in Darwin in 2021 were disrupted by the COVID pandemic, and and it was postponed to 2022. But it is clear that it will still be sometime until international flights resume as they had been pre-COVID and that 2022 will be too early for all our member associations to attend. A small Task Group of the DWF Executive will begin planning for a virtual World Assembly in 2022. More information available in the coming months.
