"Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God."

Matthew 5:9


Dear friend,


We are shaken and pray every day. In many member organisations, daily life has changed.

Because there is war in Europe.

It may seem that in such a situation an organisation like EYCE loses its importance. But in historical retrospect, the responsibility of EYCE looks quite different: We maintain a posture. We pray for peace. We stand for exchange and understanding.

We are the generation of peace.

Yours in Christ,

Steven, Spyridoula, Anne, Inga, Aida, Christian and Hannah

EYCE Executive Committee


National Correspondence Meeting - Save the Date!

We are planning our upcomming NC's Meeting in Romania! It will take place near Kronstadt/BraČ™ov from 16th to 19th of June 2022. The Executive Committee is working on the Agenda and together with our Romanian Member Organisation Evangelical Church A.B. we are preparing all the organisational details. It is planned to sent out the invitation to this important meeting in April. But we would like to ask you already to keep this date free. On any reason we can not meet in person, the NC's Meeting will be held online via zoom from 17th to 18th of June 2022.


ECEN Assembly

The 14th Assembly of European Christian Environmental Network will take place online 14th and 15th of June 2022. The Assembly will offer a broad ecumenical platform for strengthening cooperation and for sharing activities related ecology, climate change, climate justice and nature protection among representatives from Anglican, Orthodox, Protestant and Roman Catholic Churches. For the second time, EYCE has the ability to send youth participants to the Assembly which has the topic "Challenges we are living in". The program of the Assembly is varied, and to get a taste of it all we can mention eco-theology, climate change, eco-management, biodiversity and nature protection, environmental education and transition. The youth participants will also be a part of a workshop before the ECEN Assembly itself with the aim of getting to know each other, get more knowledge about what ECEN is and the topic of the Assembly. Also we will dig into what is of special concern of the youths. This Workshop will take place online on the 9th of June in the afternoon and the 11th of June in the morning. We will post information about the application process in the middle of April on our social media platforms so stay tuned!
