Welcome to the Assembly WebsiteWelcome to the Assembly Website

Welcome to the Website of the 13th Assembly of the Conference of European Churches, which is due to take place in Lyon, France from July 15-21 2009.

Our hope and intention is that this Assembly will not be planned in isolation from our member churches and associated organizations who are invited to join us for this event.  We wish in every possible way to involve those who will be delegates to the Assembly and all who are supporters of CEC throughout Europe to have the opportunity to contribute to the process of building up the Assembly.

You will therefore find on this website a whole spread of material concerning the Assembly.  You will be able to read about the history of CEC over the last 50 years as well as our hopes for the future.  You will be able to read contributions on the theme of the Assembly –‘Called to one Hope in Christ’ – which we hope will be widely used as resource material across Europe as churches and church groups join in our invitation to reflect on the Assembly Theme.  You will be able to contribute to the Guest Book which is available on the site. And you can offer your own reflections on the Assembly through the Link which this Site provides to the Assembly Office.

So, again, we welcome you!  Do please look through our Website and see all that is planned.  And so please too pray for CEC as the date of our assembly draws near that it may be a source of blessing for all the Churches of Europe

The Venerable Colin Williams
General Secretary
