Welcome to the homepage of the joint Nordic project on Churches in Times of Change (CiTC). On this page you can read about the project and the various stakeholders, summary of findings in the Nordic countries, and our recommendations for baptismal practice.
The CiTC Baptism in Times of Change is a pilot project initiated by the Nordic member churches of the Lutheran World Federation. The pilot project focus on development of baptismal practice and theology in the Nordic Lutheran national churches in Sweden, Iceland, Finland, Norway and Denmark. It studies existing research, initiatives, and practices related to baptism in the Nordic churches. Due to falling numbers, much attention has been given to baptism in recent years. The pilot project is a meta-study, aiming at gathering and analyzing existing material and experiences, in order to facilitate joint reflection by researchers, church leaders, and practitioners.
