“Building the Global Church together”
New Visions and Ideas for the Partnership Work. A North-South Online Conference.
Time: 7.3., 8:30 am - 9.3., 13:00 am
Event location: Missionsakademie an der Universität Hamburg
This online conference is aimed at those committed to ecumenical partnerships between churches in Africa and/ or Asia resp. Europe and who are interested in new models and fresh ideas for their work.
To deepen our understanding, we are asking: What is needed for a postcolonial path of learning in North-South exchange? What perspectives can be made visible from the different contexts? What guiding vision of partnership can motivate people to work together? What would have to change in order to make the network of the worldwide church also tangible for new participants? How can partnership work and thematic work be better linked? What role does solidarity work play in the networks? How will future cooperation on projects be shaped? How do multilateral partnerships change the cooperation?
In responsibility for overcoming colonialism and racism, we want to ask how the church can be a positive model of reconciliation work and diaconal solidarity in a transcultural dimension.
We are looking forward to your participation. The conference language will be English throughout. All times are in CET.
