Peacebuilding and reconciliation are among the deepest historical roots of CEC and continue to form a major part of our raison d’être. As a peace building organisation actively seek to build bridges of reconciliation, contribute to peaceful pluralism, social justice, and empower individuals and Member Churches in their own bridge-building work.
