Preparations for the 2023 General Assembly of the Conference of European Churches (CEC) mature as the assembly aims to bring European churches together in Tallinn, Estonia, from 14 – 20 June 2023, focusing the theme “Under God’s blessing – shaping the future”.

To prepare for the event, the Assembly Planning Committee (APC), chaired by Rev. Anders Gadegaard from the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Denmark, met from 9 to 10 May in Tallinn.

The committee members, together with CEC General Secretary Dr Jørgen Skov Sørensen, discussed further steps in preparations for the event. The CEC Assembly is hosted by CEC Member Churches in Estonia, such as the Estonian Evangelical Lutheran Church and the Orthodox Church of Estonia.

The committee also visited local churches and venue for the Assembly, Kultuurikatel Centre.

The CEC Assembly will be a significant moment of prayer, fellowship and reflection for the life and witness of the churches in Europe. The theme will bind the assembly participants together in an ecumenical spirit to offer churches’ contributions toward Europe’s future. Together, they will highlight the voice of Christian faith in European societies in addressing the policymakers.

Every five years, the General Assembly meets to make decisions for CEC’s future. The Assembly brings together participants representing CEC Member Churches, Organisations in Partnership and European National Councils of Churches from across Europe. The Assembly will also elect the new board members who will steer CEC’s work for the next five years.
