Many people know of Albania’s extreme communism and strict atheism from the end of World War II until the early 1990s. But what is less widely known is the country’s history of peaceful interreligious co-existence both before and after this period of dictatorship.READ MORE
In the second half of 2022, the overarching communication theme for the European Evangelical Alliance will be “Diaspora Churches.” The church landscape in Europe is increasingly characterised by diaspora groups. Church communities in majority societies in different European countries could benefit in many ways from the diversity that diaspora groups contribute to the respective domestic society and church landscape. In the coming months, we would like to create a platform for increased engagement with minority churches and listen to their stories to better understand how we can support them and learn from each other. We are very pleased that Pastor Tillarh Mukasa of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) Solution Centre in Stockholm, Sweden has agreed to answer some of our questions.READ MORE
The so-called diaspora churches have become an important part of Swedish Christianity. During the last couple of decades around 300 churches have been planted here by people from a non-Swedish culture or nationality, mostly – but not exclusively – in larger cities.READ MORE
In many places in Switzerland, a number of Ukrainian or Russian worship services, prayer and Bible groups have already been established. To support these efforts, on Friday, June 24, we organized with our network a national meeting of Ukrainians who are working in Switzerland in a key spiritual role. We called this meeting “Ukrainian Swiss Christian Summit.” About 50 people participated. Our target group were Ukrainians who have taken on a key spiritual role (pastors, leaders of prayer and Bible groups…) and Swiss representatives of churches who offer spiritual ministries for Ukrainians.READ MORE

In September 2021, the decision was made to focus our EEA communications work in the first half of 2022 on the theme “East meets West – West meets East”. The aim was to create a platform for dialogue with our newsletters, particularly between Western and Eastern Europe, where we could hear one another, learn from each other and celebrate that together we are the Body of Christ in Europe.Read more
When my parents and I came to Germany in 1976, I had no idea how much coming from Russia would shape my life and my identity. In Russia, we were called fascists and Germans. Here in Germany, I heard in the schoolyard: “Those are the Russians!”. The few Russian-German children in elementary school stood out because of their language, clothing, and behavior. We spoke German with an accent and made many mistakes.Read more
Over the first six months of 2022, the overarching communication theme of the European Evangelical Alliance will be “East meets West – West meets East”. Europe is a diverse continent with many cultural backgrounds and perspectives. In the coming months and beyond, we would like to create a platform for dialogue with our newsletters, specifically between Western and Eastern Europe.Read more
The Alliance Week of Prayer already took place in the Czech Republic in the interwar period and even survived the communist regime. This prayer initiative was one of the few occasions when Christians of different denominations would meet and start the New Year together in prayer.Read more
Conflicts between West and East are manifold. They are not always well-founded. And it is not unusual that semantic problems lie at the root. Although the same terms are used, they are usually filled with sometimes contradictory content. One such term is freedom, for many philosophers of our time the central concept for human coexistence today.Read more
