The World Council of Churches in Geneva: A pilgrimage to places of ecumenical memory

20 June 2024

As the World Council of Churches (WCC) says goodbye to its present headquarters, hoping to return to a renovated Ecumenical Centre before long, we invite you to pay a visit to some places of ecumenical memory in Geneva with which the inspiring life stories of youth ecumenical organisations and of the WCC are associated. 

Our first stop will be at Rue Calvin, where we will learn a little about the youth pioneering ecumenical work in the 1920s and 1930s. From there we will walk about 20 minutes to reach Route de Malagnou, where we will visit the WCC during its post-war years of remarkable growthThe visit will end on the other side of Lake Geneva, at Route de Ferney, on 11 July 1965, when we will listen to a sermon about what a new chapel may teach us about the call to unity. Let’s go.      

Post expires on August 25th, 2024
