Central committee 2022

The World Council of Churches central committee meeting via video conference, 9-15 February 2022

The World Council of Churches (WCC) central committee will convene via video conference from 9-15 February to prepare for the 11th WCC Assembly, taking place in August-September in Karlsruhe, Germany under the theme Christs love moves the world to reconciliation and unity.” The WCC governing body will also address business matters and strengthen the WCC fellowship through sharing and prayer. 

The central committee agenda includes matters related to the assembly—a report from the Assembly Planning Committee, assembly nominations, the draft unity statement and documents intended for use at the assembly. The central committee may also consider different scenarios for the assembly in the context of the pandemic. The Working Group on Constitution and Rules will present its work for consideration, and the central committee will also act on WCC membership applications from two churches.

Pilgrims on the Path of Peace

The Journey of the WCC from Busan to Karlsruhe (Unillustrated)

For each assembly, the central committee submits an accountability report, describing and offering an assessment of the activities of the WCC between the assemblies; in this case, since the 10th Assembly, in Busan, Republic of Korea, in late 2013.

The report “Pilgrims on the Path of Peace – The Journey of the WCC from Busan to Karlsruhe,” is now available online for WCC member churches, ecumenical partners, and other global pilgrims. The WCC central committee received the report in February.
