Rachel PowerRachel Power (Ireland)

Hi! I’m Rachel from SCM Ireland. I am 27. I have studied Theology and Philosophy in my undergrad at Carlow College and I have also studied Intercultural Theology and Inter-religious Studies in my Masters that I undertook in Trinity College Dublin.

I have a huge interest in both Ecumenical Studies and Inter-religious Dialogue. I came into contact with WSCF in 2012 at a conference that took place in Co. Tipperary. That was my first ever conference. I then became a co-founding director to SCM-IRELAND shortly after. On from there my next dealing in WSCF was when I was on prepcom for a conference that took place in Wroclaw in Poland in 2014. I really enjoyed this as it gave me a great insight to a conference and I also found this conference to be of huge interest to me. At the end of February 2015 I was the SCMI representative to travel to Bogota in Columbia for the WSCF GA. I really enjoyed my time there as I met so many SCMers from all over the world. This also heightened my interest in ecumenical dialogue as there was so much passion showed by so many of us towards WSCF and the incredible work we are involved in to keep it alive and make it even stronger. It gave me even more passion to be involved with WSCF so this heightened my decision to apply for vice chair of the ERC.

I am very happy that I am the newly elected Vice Chair of ERC. I am sincerely passionate about SCM’s and WSCF on both a regional and global level. To see so many young people come together and stand up for what we really believe in is inspirational. As the saying goes “Many hands make light work” this also applies to WSCF. I am extremely happy to be apart of this and see WSCF-E grow and continue to do this incredible work. Always remember “We Are Many We Are One Sent Out To Build God’s Peace”
