The people living in the territory of Guinea when it was colonized by the French in 1891 were the Mandinga, who were Muslim. Islam has remained the majority religion. The Christian churches are a small minority in Guinea. The largest Protestant group, the Protestant Evangelical Church of Guinea, together with the small Anglican community - part of the Province of West Africa - and the Catholic Church, has formed a Christian Council. There is also a Federation of Evangelical Churches and Missions, affiliated with the WEA. An inter-religious council facilitates dialogue and relationships between Christians and Muslims.
