Inter-Orthodox Pre-Assembly Consultation

With the World Council of Churches (WCC) 11th Assembly approaching in less than four months, Orthodox Churches will convene in Cyprus for a pre-assembly to prepare themselves for the larger event in Karlsruhe, Germany, 31 August – 8 September.

Inter-Orthodox Pre-Assembly Consultation

Fifty-two delegates representing 20 Eastern and Oriental Orthodox WCC member churches will participate in the meeting, taking place 9-16 May. The purpose of this meeting is to study, discuss and reflect on the main theme of the WCC 11th Assembly, "Christ's love moves the world to reconciliation and unity" from an Orthodox perspective.  

Discussions will also center around current global challenges and how the Orthodox agenda at the WCC 11th Assembly can keep dialogue open. Representatives of the Orthodox families will present papers on the assembly theme as well as on the thematic plenaries.
