The Conference of European Churches (CEC) is a fellowship bringing together 114 churches from Orthodox, Protestant, and Anglican traditions from across Europe for dialogue, advocacy, and joint action.
Together we strengthen our common witness, act in service to Europe and the world, promote peace, and work for the unity of the Church. Our vision is “Together in Hope and Witness”.
A network of National Councils of Churches keeps us connected to national and regional concerns and Organisations in Partnership develop our expertise in a number of areas, including diaconia, migration and refugee issues, and women and youth in the churches.
CEC emerged as a peacebuilding effort in 1959, building bridges between the East and the West during the Cold War. This original mission carries us forward today as we continue to work for a humane, social and sustainable Europe at peace with itself and its neighbours.
