Prague, Czech Republic 21-24 September 2011 Central Committee of CEC to meet in Prague, Czech Republic
“The Central Committee of CEC is not only the highest authority of this organisation between General Assemblies but also the largest and most inclusive platform for exchange and reflection in Europe. At its meeting in Prague the CEC Central Committee will have to take a lot of decisions for the future cooperation with all churches in Europe, as well as to reflect on how the churches should respond to the challenges the whole world is struggling with today”, said Rev. Dr Viorel Ionita, CEC Interim General Secretary. The comprehensive task for this Central Committee will be first of all to decide on a clear direction for CEC to follow in the coming years. One of the primary steps for moving in this direction will be the election of a new Interim General Secretary. In accessing how CEC and its member churches can work more effectively together for the common future of the churches in Europe, the Central Committee will receive reports from the CEC Revision Working Group and the Assembly Planning Committee which are working on the preparations for the 14th Assembly of CEC along with a report on the working priorities for 2012.
The Central Committee will also receive reports from the Interim General Secretary, the Church and Society Commission (CSC), the Churches in Dialogue Commission (CiD) as well as a report from the Churches Commission for Migrants in Europe (CCME). A special highlight of the meeting will be a time for discussion between the Central Committee members and representatives from the churches in the Czech Republic.
The Conference of European Churches (CEC) is a fellowship of some 120 Orthodox, Protestant, Anglican and Old Catholic Churches from all countries of Europe, plus 40 associated organisations. CEC was founded in 1959 and has offices in Geneva, Brussels and Strasbourg.
