The WCC Assembly is now postponed until 2022, planned earlier to take place in Karlsruhe, Germany, from 8 to 16 September 2021, addressing the theme “Christ’s love moves the world to reconciliation and unity”.

Participants will raise awareness about crucial topics in Europe promoting churches’ work in different areas and reflect on global concerns that will be raised during the WCC Assembly.
