The Conference of European Churches (CEC) an ecumenical fellowship of 114 Member Churches, National Councils of Churches, and Organisations in Partnership. CEC’s membership covers Europe in its broad political sense, from Iceland to Armenia, Canary Islands to Siberia. CEC was founded in 1959 having active associates and networks in most European countries. The mission of CEC is to pursue together the path of growing conciliar understanding by helping the European Churches to renew their spiritual life, to strengthen their common witness and service and to promote the unity of the Church and peace in the world. Our vision is to seek in faithfulness to the Gospel the reconciliation and common witness of the Churches to build a humane, socially conscious and sustainable Europe at peace with itself and its neighbours, in which human rights and the basic values of peace, justice, freedom participation and solidarity prevail. Its task is to help the churches study questions from a theological and socio-ethical perspective, especially those with a European Dimension.
CEC accompanies European churches in their dialogue with each other, other ecumenical and inter-religious partners, and the Institutions of the European Union and the Council of Europe.
The Dialogue Secretary is acting as executive staff member and will report to the General Secretary. The successful candidate will be joining a small team of staff at Europe’s leading ecumenical organisation.
