Press Release No:15/22
24 June 2022
The CEC Annual Report 2021 titled Churches Together for Hope is now available. The report provides an overview of activities carried out by the Conference of European Churches (CEC), highlighting accomplishments and challenges.
The report describes CEC’s work in the context of COVID-19, covering areas such as peace and reconciliation, ecclesiology and mission, dialogue with European Institutions, EU policy and legislation, human rights, care for creation and sustainable development, science, new technologies, education, democracy and diversity, as well as migration and asylum.
In their introduction to the report, CEC President Rev. Christian Krieger and CEC General Secretary Dr Jørgen Skov Sørensen shared how despite pandemic-related restrictions and organisational challenges, CEC managed to navigate unpredictable circumstances, adapting to a situation beyond control. “This was possible through CEC’s dedicated staff, committed Member Churches, National Councils of Churches and Organisations in Partnership.”
“CEC moved towards new directions in 2021. Several years of organisational scrutiny and analysis brought the CEC Governing Board to decide on working towards a better profiled, and not least, more focused organisation, by the end of 2021.”
“As we read about CEC’s journey in 2021, learning about its accomplishments and challenges, let us hold on to a resilient hope, as we move into our common future,” they added.
