Welcome,

to the website face2face2020.at/en today. We hope to also welcome you "face to face" at Christian ENCOUNTERS July 3rd to 5th, 2020 in Graz!

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. For three days, Graz becomes an ecumenical hotspot for dialogue and interaction. Visitors from nine countries and eighteen churches with different mother tongues and traditions come together "face to face" to share their faith, experiences and attentiveness. An international preparatory group of over 35 people is responsible for and organizes the diverse program.
