The Latest News from Corpus Christi

On 29 August at 10:00 CEST there will be an hour long lecture in typical Corpus Christi Lutheran style followed by its General Assembly at 11:00 CEST in a digital setting.

As part of the meeting, the board will present the status of the work of Corpus Christi and invite all participants (including those who are not voting members) to join the discussion on how to develop the work for the future.

To become/remain a voting member, please pay the annual membership fee of 10 EUR to any of the bank accounts listed on our website (add ‘name’ and ‘membership fee’) no later than 27August, so that we can send you the documents, agenda, and instructions.

Concerning Corpus Christi 2021

After much discussion and careful consideration of feedback from attendants from various countries and also the various venues in Wittenberg we are excited to announce that we plan for the next Corpus Christi Conference to take place in Lutherstadt Wittenberg from July 19th-23rd, 2021! We look forward to seeing you in 2021!

Concerning Corpus Christi 2020

After serious deliberation, we have decided to postpone Corpus Christi Conference 2020 until next year.

We have not taken this decision lightly. Instead, we kept hoping for the best until the final deadline with the Conference venues came upon us. Although Europe is gradually beginning to open up, things are simply not clear enough yet for us to be able to move on with the arrangements. The governments of many countries from which our participants hail still advise against foreign travel. Borders for non-EU nationals are not likely to open any time soon. Some of our speakers – including Rev Dr John Kleinig – have had to cancel. Local rules concerning social distancing, catering, masks and even singing would be a challenge. Coming together for several days from countries with varying epidemiological situations might pose a risk.

The good news is that with the solid preparations already underway for the Conference in Wittenberg this summer, we are hoping to be able to arrange the Conference in a year’s time without all the time and effort going to waste.

As we wait for Corpus Christi 2021, we are aiming to organize smaller conferences in English planned by local working groups throughout the year. Please contact the Board if you are interested in hosting a “mini CC” in your home country! For now, let us draw your attention to the following events for young adults that are not under the Corpus Christi umbrella but that we recommend for those in the area:

• Young adults’ camp, ELMDF, Muhos, Finland, 16–18 October, in Finnish (http://www.lhpk.fi)

If you have already registered for the Conference and paid the fee, please let the Registration Team know if you wish to be reimbursed now, or if you wish to let us keep it as a payment for the Conference next year (conference@corpuschristi.eu).

We hope that you understand our difficult decision. Moreover, we hope that you are starting to plan to attend the Conference next year and perhaps one of the smaller events before that. We ask that you keep praying for the continuation of the work that we do.

“The Lord of hosts is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.” (Psalm 46:11 ESV)

God keep you all safe and sound in Christ,
