A European event with a background
Christian ENCOUNTERS is a European event with a background! Following the fall of the Iron Curtain, Protestant Christians from the Lutheran churches in Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic created a meeting point for the first time in 1991. Even more than 25 years on from that first initiative, central European Protestant churches continue to meet every three years, each time in a different country.
The three Protestant churches in Austria – the Protestant Church A.C., the Protestant Church H.C. and the United Methodist Church in Austria – are issuing a joint invitation to Christian ENCOUNTERS 2020. The Roman Catholic Diocese of Graz-Seckau is co-organising the event.
We look forward to welcoming our European neighbours to Austria!
Statement about Christian ENCOUNTERS
“When we meet, we are more than a collection of individuals. And we live in the face of others, not in our own, we don’t see that!”
