Meeting of ecumenical families: Assembly of the United Evangelical Mission (VEM) in Wuppertal 2014.
The ecumenical network
The promoting of ecumenical fellowship among the
churches is of the highest significance for the Evangelical Church in the
Rhineland and is written into Article 1 of the Church constitution. And this is lived out in intensive ways – for
example in ecumenical partnerships between local churches, church districts and
at the regional level.
ecumenical networking is shown in co-operation and co-sponsorship for the running
of numerous organisations and institutions, and in involvement in activities on
a variety of topics. Going beyond Christian ecumenism, the Rhineland Church
promotes Christian- Jewish dialogue in particular, and in addition it attaches
great importance to good-neighbourly relations with other religions.
