International Congress Renovabis

For many years, the International Congress Renovabis has served the dialogue between East and West. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, it will be held for the first time as an online conference and will also focus on the effects of the corona crisis on church and society in Eastern Europe.

25th International Congress Renovabis 2021

This year's International Congress Renovabis will take place on 15 and 16 September 2021 on the theme „‚All shall be one‘. Ecumenism in Central and Eastern Europe - Task and Enrichment“. Following the congress, a reception will be held to mark the change at the top of Renovabis. This year, the congress will take place as a hybrid event. Due to the requirements of the corona pandemic, unfortunately only a limited number of people can attend in Berlin, we ask for your understanding. Renovabis hopes that next year's congress can take place again in Presence. We cordially invite you to join us online. You can follow the congress online via livestream (zoom) and participate in the discussion via chat.

Subject

In implementing the subject „‚All Shall Be One. Ecumenism in Central and Eastern Europe – Task and Enrichment“, fundamental questions of confessional togetherness between Catholic, Protestant and Orthodox Christians will be addressed, but important will also be the discourse on ecumenism in everyday life. In the face of the pandemic, the churches have been confronted with new challenges on how to organise pastoral care, catechesis and worship services, often in ecumenical cooperation. At the same time – and this will also be a topic – there are still tensions between the denominations in many countries, the causes of which are often historical; examples of this are Romania and Ukraine.

All churches in Europe are united in their concern about the future of Christianity in an increasingly secular world, whose inhabitants are searching for meaning more than ever before, but Christianity is losing more and more of its appeal. The congress will not be able to provide answers to the related questions, but it can provide important food for thought.
