History

The purpose of the Swedish Mission Council, SMC, has, since its formation in the early 1900s, been cooperation between organizations that want to take responsibility in the world.

The foundations were laid at the World Missionary Conference held in Edinburgh, Scotland 1910. Sweden was represented by 18 delegates from some organizations that are members of SMC today.

The organizations brought back the idea of forming mission councils in different countries.

In 1912 a mission conference was held in Sweden, where the Working Committee for the General Swedish Mission Conference was formed. The Committee changed its name to the Swedish Mission Council in 1922.

Since 1980 SMC has a framework agreement with Sida.
