The executive committee will focus solely on the manner by which the WCC central committee will be convened for the meeting scheduled for 23-29 June 2021.

“The executive committee will receive and discuss a report on the feasibility of convening the central committee using electronic communications as provided in Rule XVIII.8. It will provide direction for setting a limited agenda to address critical business,” said Rev. Dr Prof Ioan Sauca, interim general secretary of the WCC. The report was prepared at the request of the executive committee by the working group on constitution and rules appointed by the central committee.

Sauca added: “The report offers advice on how best to prepare the meeting so as to maintain the ethos and practice of decision-making by consensus. The executive committee will also consider how to address pending business, should the central committee not be able to convene in-person before the assembly.”

Sauca has been publishing monthly accountability reports to the WCC central committee to keep members up-to-date on how the WCC is responding to and adapting during the COVID-19 pandemic.
