The countryside as a place for working and living is increasingly attractive especially for many young people. The growing awareness of the necessity to develop a more sustainable lifestyle fits well with the possibilities rural areas can provide.
During the 3rd European Conference of Churches in rural areas we want to highlight the resources that local congregations and the church in total can contribute to a good and healthy life. The churches in rural areas have a lot to give to society: Human resources, Economical resources, Cultural resources, Resources due to a lot of buildings, Resources to be inclusive, a lot more.... We will ask: What do people in the countryside need? How can we make ourselves as churches more attractive in rural areas?
With keynote from Prof. Hartmut Rosa, University of Jena and others. Excursions to different local projects will be part of the conference. Delegations from Denmark, Germany, England, Sweden, Poland and other European countries will learn from and with each other. Above all: We want to empower each other, pray, sing and think beyond our cultural borders.
