The Conference of European Churches was founded in 1959 as a peacebuilding organisation following the death and destruction of World War II. We continue to honour these earliest roots through an ongoing commitment to peacebuilding and reconciliation. Through various activities we seek to build bridges, provide an opportunity for encounter, and work for social justice.
As a church-fellowship, the Conference of European Churches engages in dialogue with European Institutions, raising a Christian voice to address crucial political concerns.
