We are excited and anticipate a marvelous gathering of young adults from the World Communion of Reformed Churches who will gather in Leipzig in June of this year! We have put together what we believe to be challenging content, along with possibilities of artistic imagining and expression and wonderful space for worship and fellowship. We hope to see your young adults join us for a fantastic time in Germany this summer!
Our content will be focused on economics and the Degrowth movement informed by the wonderful people at Konzeptwerk here in Germany. We will consider how Scripture leads us as Christians and in our role as disciples in the arena of economics, environment and society. We also have the privilege of having a number of professional artists who will be in residence to challenge and enable us to give expression to the content we learn. This will culminate in a public forum in the city of Leipzig at the end of our time together.
And of course all of this is possible through our times of worship and fellowship. Each day will begin and end with a time of worship, hearing the Word of God, spending time in prayer, being challenged with discipleship and leadership for the global church. We have also provided plenty of time and space for the building of friendships through fellowship and the important connection of the body of Christ, which is the global church.
We are excited to welcome you to Germany and look forward to all the things God has in store for us as we gather to worship, learn, grow and proclaim the wonders of God’s love for us through Jesus Christ as brothers and sisters from around the world. Join us! We look forward to being together.
