Arbetsgemenskapen Kyrklig Förnyelse
The organisation's beginnings were originally inspired by the book "Kyrklig förnyelse" by Father Gunnar Rosendal and it already existed a long time before its official foundation on 28 April 1959. The annual assembly of aKF is in Uppsala in August. Theologically the aKF is orthodox and in opposition to Folk Church ideology and the general theological liberalism in the Church of Sweden. One well known member of this organisation was a Swedish-Canadian scholar Eric Segelberg.
The aKF's sister organisations are The Church Union in the Church of England, Bønne- og arbeidsfellesskapet Kirkelig Fornyelse in Norway, Arbeitsgemeinschaft Kirchliche Erneuerung in der Evang.-Luth. Kirche in Bayern in Germany, and Kirkelig Fornyelse in Church of Denmark.
