WCC Central Committee leadership to meet in Geneva

The leadership of the World Council of Churches (WCC) Central Committee will meet on 19-21 February at the Ecumenical Centre in Geneva.

The WCC Central Committee leadership includes Dr Agnes Abuom, moderator; Metropolitan Prof. Dr Gennadios of Sassima and Bishop Mary Ann Swenson, both vice-moderators of the WCC Central Committee; and WCC general secretary Rev. Dr Olav Fykse Tveit. The full WCC Central Committee will meet 18-24 March and the Executive Committee 16-17 March in Geneva, Switzerland.

The leadership will have a joint meeting with the leadership of the ACT Alliance to reflect back over the past decade and to look at ways of strengthening cooperation in the future.

Central Committee leaders will also receive an update on planning for the WCC 11th Assembly, to be held in Karlsruhe, Germany in September 2021.

The assembly is the "supreme legislative body" of the WCC, and meets every eight years. The formal purpose of the assembly is to review programmes and determine the overall policies of the WCC, as well as to elect presidents and appoint a Central Committee which serves as the chief governing body of the WCC until the next assembly.

Financial matters will also be discussed, including income development and the Green Village. The group will also consider membership and programme updates.


Media accreditation to WCC Central Committee meeting, held at the Ecumenical Centre in Geneva, 18 – 24 March, 2020.

The Central Committee of the World Council of Churches will meet 18 – 24 March at the Ecumenical Centre in Geneva. It will be the fourth meeting of this Central Committee since it was elected at the WCC 10th Assembly in Busan, Republic of Korea, in 2013.

The Central Committee meets every two years and serves as the chief governing body of the WCC between assemblies. It is responsible for implementing the policies adopted by the assembly, reviewing and supervising WCC programmes and the budget of the council. The current Central Committee’s mandate terminates at the 11th WCC Assembly, held in Karlsruhe, Germany, in 2021.

Live streamed media briefings will be held at the Ecumenical Centre everyday throughout the Central Committee meeting, except on Sunday, 22 March.

Media accreditation is mandatory. Media are invited to apply for accreditation by filling out and returning an accreditation form.
