Welcome

to our future-focused European Conference

We look forward to hearing from participants working in various disciplines in the humanities, from all regions of Europe, and with very different interests in the Communion of Protestant Churches in Europe (CPCE).

What we plan

We hope to spark some intensive discussions about the CPCE’s potential and future, as we mark the 50th anniversary of the Leuenberg Agreement.

We discuss

How can Protestant churches act in communion to promote peace, reconciliation and sustainable development in Europe?

Ecumenism

We represent Protestant theology, but we are just as keen to receive ecumenical papers and other constructive perspectives on theology and the Church.

Focus

The focus will be on the contemporary significance of the realisation of common church existence launched by the Leuenberg Agreement and the question as to how this might and must be shaped in the future.

Call for papers

Deadline for submission of abstracts (200-400 words): 31 October 2022.
Language of submission and presentation:  English or German
