In many churches, there are currently discussions about structural reforms, mission statements and new forms of church activities. But often the horizon of the discussions does not reach beyond the individual church. And a widespread charge in the discussions (e.g. in Germany) is that economic paradigms are more important than ecclesiological reflections. But what can be the criteria for the “ecclesia semper reformanda”?

The Community of Protestant Churches in Europe serves to realize the church fellowship between its member churches, especially by common realization of witness and service and further theological work. It is based on the Leuenberg Agreement (1973), which reflects an implicite ecclesiology, elaborated in further doctrinal studies of CPCE.

The conference in Berlin will be the prelude of a consultation process that is commissioned by the CPCE Council and will be conducted with young ecumenicists (up to 35 years), theologians and non-theologians from member churches, associated organizations and universities. After autumn 2009, working groups will work on their own hands. Their results will be compiled in one or two further consultations and shall be on hand at the CPCE General Assembly in 2012.

The consultation process shall analyze different projects of church renewal, look at the ecclesiological foundations and examine whether there are possibilities of cooperation in witness and service to the world. The challenges coming from the charismatic movements on the one hand and from the growing secularism on the other hand shall be given special attention.
