IAMS Europe Conference 2019

IAMS Europe Conference

Around 90 scholars of mission participated in the IAMS Europe Conference 2019 at the SVD Mission House compound at Sankt Augustin (Germany) under the general theme of “Locating European Missions in a Wounded World in Deep Transformation,” from August 23 to 26, 2019. They listened to 20 lectures in plenary sessions dealing with social wounds and transformations, topics around the importance and implications of baptism, spirituality in transformation, baptism in multi-faith Europe and in the context of secularisation, religious freedom and solidarity with the wounded, and the renewal of churches. They further discussed around 25 papers of participants in sessions on mission theology, spirituality, interreligious and interfaith relations, mission and politics, religious freedom, church and culture, migrations and martyria.

Participants were quite content with the open atmosphere of discussions, the stimulating input and the sharing in missiological exchange.
