Monday 15 – Friday 19 September 2014

This is not a conference or colloquium with specialist speakers but rather an opportunity for genuine consultation. For this reason considerable time will be given to small group discussions, both formal and informal, which will form an important part of our interaction together.

Bible Study and Prayer are an important part of our time together. Each morning one of our participants will lead us in a Biblical reflection on the theme of the days discussions. We will also  have opportunities to experience the prayer and worship traditions of our different communities.

On Tuesday 16 September the Consultation will encompass an Orthodox-Evangelical gathering of Albania Youth.

Further information about this consultation will be published on this site in the coming weeks.
