ECCE conference is for to all who work in children´s ministry and/or coordinate this work in the Church. It takes place every three years, each time in a different country, and the most recent Conference was held in Berlin, Germany 25.-29 March 2019. The next will be held in Hungary in 2022.
The main language of the ECCE is English. The lectures are given in English and the notes are provided in German and French as well.
There are a variety of workshops to choose from at the Conference and these are also delivered in English. Any delegate can volunteer to lead a one-hour workshop if they have something they can offer.
The ECCE Steering Group makes the final decision on the workshops included in the conference programme.
The 2019 programme included worship led by each of the five regions, trips to local parishes, a night-time tour of Berlin, creative/interactive Bible studies, discussion of current work and a “market-place” to showcase some of the work being done in each country/denomination represented.
