Statement on peace after Paris attacks (13 Nov 2015)

The Ecumenical Forum of European Christian Women is deeply shocked by the attacks in Paris committed in the name of religion. This is not our understanding of faith.
We believe in a God of life and peace, of love and mercy. We believe in dialogue and communication instead of violence and death. Killing is not the solution of coping with our differences and conflicts.
We stand in solidarity with our French sisters and brothers and feel with them in their grieve and losses.

Deadline for project-applications to EFECW Jacqueline Stuyt Legacy Fund: 1st March 2016

The Ecumenical Forum of European Christian Women

"The Ecumenical Forum of European Christian Women" was represented by Martina Heinrichs, former Co President, who gave a presentation of women's rights in the churches in Europe - in the aftermath of the Ecumenical Decade of Churches in Solidarity with Women, an item which was followed up by Fulata Moyo from the World Council of Churches. Martina talked also about the diversity of women in the ecumenical European movement, about feminist theology and - last but not least - about the Forum's project "Pop Up Monastery".

Network
The Ecumenical Forum of European Christian Women (EFECW) is an international, church-related organisation that is active in over 30 European countries.

EFECW envisions to be a living Christian community of sisters, by creating a holy and safe space where all women – beyond their differences – are empowered to share their spirituality and to experience faith.

EFECW strives to become a recognised voice of Christian women in Church and public life in Europe.
