About us

The CPCE is the umbrella organisation of the protestant churches. 94 lutheran, methodist, reformed and united churches from over thirty countries in Europe and South America belong to it. With that the CPCE represents altogether around 50 million Protestants.

The CPCE exists thanks to the Leuenberg Agreement of 1973. It concluded: churches are allowed to be different because they appeal to the Gospel as their common basis. That sounds simple, but has far-reaching consequences: since then a lutheran minister can preach from a reformed pulpit or a French minister lead a congregation in Germany.

European Cities of the Reformation

The “European Cities of the Reformation” is a project to strengthen the partnerships between the European churches and their towns and cities as they celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. The scheme promotes the vibrant interaction of art, culture and spirituality and encourages historical adventures and tourism in the towns and cities where the Reformation evolved.

The CPCE awarded participating towns and cities the title “European City of the Reformation” and right to use the official emblem and a joint media campaigns to publicise the full range of activities.

Young Theologians in Communion

The Communion of Protestant Churches in Europe gets young people involved in its work. To support this intention, in June 2020 the Council convened a reference group of young theologians, inviting more than 20 nominees aged between 21 and 35 years, put forward by their own churches, to take part in the Young Theologians in Communion programme. This group of young people will use the time leading up to the next General Assembly to scrutinise the work currently being conducted by the CPCE (doctrinal conversations, topics, activities) so as to inject a younger perspective. Their role will help them get to know the Church Communion and to directly experience and actively help shape “unity in reconciled diversity”.
