Eurochurch.net (ECN) provides a platform for dialogue and sharing to facilitate missional thinking and church planting in Europe. Working through conferences, forums, publications, lectures, and training we seek to develop missional leadership for missional church in 21st century Europe, united and effective in taking the good news about Jesus Christ back to the least-evangelised continent.
ECN is hopeful about the future of the church in Europe because we believe that God is at work. We recognise that the future is shaped by committed minorities who use creative imagination to explore God’s purposes. We acknowledge that history often hinges on the courageous activity of a single generation. We desire this generation to be a hinge on which the future will be redirected.
We regret to announce the death of our colleague Bishop Tony Palmer, who died of injuries after a motorbike accident in July. You can read a tribute to him here.
