The Rev. Canon Michael Barlowe, Secretary of the General Convention, announced that The Episcopal Church has been invited to send delegates to the 2021 Assembly of the World Council of Churches, scheduled for September 8 – 16, 2021 in Karlsruhe, Germany.
The theme for the 2021 Assembly is: “Christ’s love moves the world to reconciliation and unity.”

Episcopal Enterprises looks beyond traditional stewardship models by “providing an innovative platform for the church to engage in social enterprise in order to create greater capacity for ministry and better sustain our communities and our parishes.”
The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition. The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity. Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.
