The Conference of European Churches, together with the Louvain Centre for Eastern and Oriental Christianity (LOCEOC), will host an online conference “The Hope of Communion: 1920 to 2020” from 16 to 17 December 2020.
The online event will gather distinguished speakers from across Europe and North America and bring into focus the two landmark ecumenical texts from 1920, namely The Patriarchal Encyclical Letter to the Churches of Christ Everywhere and The Appeal to all Christian People issued by the Lambeth Conference of Anglican Bishops.
The conference will uncover the expectations for unity reflected in these texts, explore their relationship to the subsequent ecumenical developments, and address the question of what the hope of communion means for relations between the churches today.
The conference will be held Central European Time. Names of speakers, programme schedule and registration link to sign up will be shared soon.
