The CEC Annual Report 2019 is now available. The report reviews CEC activities carried out in 2019, continuing in the current year, featuring highlights from CEC’s 60th anniversary commemorated together with CEC Member Churches and partners across Europe.
The report describes CEC’s work in the area of peace and reconciliation, ecclesiology and mission, dialogue with European Institutions, EU policy and legislation, human rights, care for creation and sustainable development, bioethics, as well as migration and asylum.
In his introduction to the report, CEC President Rev. Christian Krieger explains how the main theme “Together in Hope and Witness,” which directs CEC’s Strategic Plan for 2019–2023, invokes the “fundamental principles that have guided CEC over its 60-year history”.
“This report describes the activities that exemplify CEC’s mission.”
“The CEC Annual Report 2019 reflects a time characterised by both organisational and societal changes and challenges,” said CEC general secretary Dr Jørgen Skov Sørensen in his introduction to the report. The past year also marks “60th anniversary since the establishment of CEC as an instrument of peace and reconciliation,” he added.
“Europe’s churches are present and active at all levels of society, ready to play their particular role. In an ecumenical spirit, CEC continues to nurture a shared calling, a common destiny and a solid fellowship among churches,” said Dr Sørensen.
