“Free for the Future – Protestant Churches in Europe” is the theme for the coming 7th General Assembly of CPCE, the Community of Protestant Churches in Europe, from 20th to 26th September 2012 in Florence. The meeting of the highest decision-making body of the 105 member churches in more than 30 countries will have processes of church reform as its main material theme. “What varying experiences with the social changes in their home countries can our churches bring in? What are the shared theological and practical contributions of the protestant churches to a changing Europe? The discussions of the General Assembly should issue in a call to the churches on the way to the 500th anniversary of the Reformation in 2017”, said CPCE President Thomas Wipf.
