Ecclesiology and Theological Dialogue

image001Theological dialogue runs through all CEC work. In this area, we give special emphasis to theological reflection on the challenges facing the churches of Europe, to dialogue, and encounters among Member Churches and National Councils of Churches. Our work in this area also focusses on the relationship between minority and majority churches. The foundation for all work in this area is the Charta Œcumenica.

For the period of 2015-2018, work in this area will focus on the following themes:

  • Evaluating the impact of the Charta Œcumenica
  • Responding to growing secularism
  • Commemorating the Reformation from an ecumenical perspective
  • Theological education
