2017 General Council

26th General Council: 29 June to 7 July 2017: Leipzig, Germany

The 2017 General Council theme—Living God, renew and transform us—not only reflects the WCRC’s heritage but centres the Council around the God of Life and challenges participants to renew themselves and the church so that the world can be transformed.

Registration for the Council is now open, and approved delegations will receive instructions via email. Delegations to the 2017 General Council continue to be named by WCRC member churches and should be submitted as soon as possible to the General Council Coordinator (hanns.lessing@wcrc.eu).

The Visitors Programme provides an ideal way to come to the General Council. Visitors will be able to attend Council sessions, join the trips to Berlin and Wittenberg, meet with keynote speakers, enjoy special arts programmes and more.

Beginning the weekend prior to the Council a special Youth Gathering is being held. Young people from the around the world will be able to experience Christian fellowship and explore what it looks like to be a disciple of Christ Jesus in our unique contexts.

Information on two other programmes for young people is available through the following links: the Global Institute of Theology and the Stewards Programme.
