Conference of Churches on the Rhine
(Conférence des Eglises riveraines du Rhin, Konferenz der Kirchen am Rhein)
Founded in 1961.
The Conference of Churches on the Rhine understands itself as a space for ecumenical encounter and cooperation where, in listening together to the concrete commandments of Jesus Christ, impulses for missionary, diaconal, social and ecumenical commitment may be hoped for. The Conference came into being as an instrument of reconciliation and peace, with the purpose of making the Rhine a symbol of togetherness and no longer of separation and dreams of power to invade each other.
