In a virtual meeting on 8 June, heads of the European National Councils of Churches met with CEC General Secretary Dr Jørgen Skov Sørensen and CEC Executive Secretary Katerina Pekridou, engaging with CEC’s developing profile, and its upcoming Assembly in Tallinn

The topics were discussed through the lens of public theology, reflected in the theme of CEC Assembly “Under God’s blessing – shaping the future”.

The Assembly will take place from 14 to 20 June 2023.

New directions in CEC’s work, as well as its Assembly, are centred around the role of ecumenical theology, transcending private, national, and confessional borders, and the significant contribution from churches to the public conversation and action for the common good.

The general secretaries of the European NCCs also shared about their ongoing work.

The virtual meeting was held ahead of a physical meeting of the NCCs, planned in autumn, where NCCs will be invited to contribute in shaping the programme of CEC Assembly.
