The PCC has the opportunity to name two delegates from our church to attend the Kirchentag in Dortmund, Germany, from June 19–23, 2019. You could join 100,000 participants in a festival of over 2,500 events.

If you would like to attend this church festival, you may apply to be a delegate of our church.

The Kirchentag celebrates being in community with large-scale acts of worship reaching out beyond boundaries. It is a festival of faith and of social responsibility. Click here for the event website.

Delegates will receive:

  • Free four-day passes (valued at 98 euros per person)
  • The opportunity to be billeted at no cost during the event

Delegates will be responsible for:

  • Travel, meals, incidentals

Delegates must be members of The Presbyterian Church in Canada and apply to the General Assembly Office by February 15, 2019.

The theme for the Kirchentag is “What confidence is this,” a phrase derived from 2 Kings 18:19. How strongly does trust sustain us in periods of profound anxiety about the future or in social crisis? What happens when trust is put to the test? How do we live trustingly together—today and in the future?
