CWM Assembly 2020: “Rising to life with Jesus”

ABOUT EVENT

The Assembly, comprising delegates, Directors and Trustees, ecumenical partners, resource persons, staff, stewards and guests, provides the CWM member bodies and partners, through their delegates, the opportunity to worship, study, and reflect together; network and fellowship with each other within the CWM partnership of churches and the ecumenical community; receive an update on the work of CWM; and to appoint Directors to serve on the Council for the ensuing period. The Assembly is a festive and celebratory event.

THEME OF THE ASSEMBLY


The theme for the 2020 Assembly is “Rising to life with Jesus”. The theme is meant to inspire God’s people to claim God’s victory over death and destruction in all forms, and to pursue God’s life-flourishing alternative for all.

The Strategic Planning processes and engagement with member churches leads us also to focus on the theme of “life.” The formation of the theology statement focuses on the reality that “Babylon has fallen” and that empire has lost, therefore we can focus on the new possibilities of renewed life. At the 2020 Assembly, the new strategic framework will be presented, therefore there would be an overlap between the new CWM theology statement and the Assembly theme. Another feature of the Strategy Planning process is the call to radical discipleship and to ask what does following Jesus mean as we look towards new life. In contributing to the formulation of the theme, the hosting churches offered insights on the book of Revelation reflecting on God’s promise that God’s people will overcome and be vindicated.

YOUR HOSTS

United Congregational Church of Southern Africa (UCCSA)

The UCCSA is a multi-cultural and multi-ethnic church denomination which is united across five southern African countries – Botswana, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa and Zimbabwe. It was formed on October 3, 1967 when Congregational Union of South Africa, the Bantu Congregational Church and London Missionary Society united as one. Born out of unity and for unity, their ethos is undergirded by the spirit of ubuntu and bana ba tshipa tshwaraganeng (‘the children of the meerkats look out/care for each other’).

Uniting Presbyterian Church in Southern Africa (UPCSA)
The UPCSA is a diverse community of Reformed Christians led by the Word of God and the Holy Spirit, prayerfully seeking the will of God for their lives together and the world. They envision being a reconciled community of Christians exercising a prophetic witness to Christ. Their mission is to proclaim the Triune God in Southern Africa through bearing witness to the saving love of Jesus Christ; building vital, reforming congregations for worship, ministry and discipleship; and visibly proclaiming the Kingdom of God through unity, justice, peace and love.
