Webinar series for international and Danish church leadership

In the spring of 2021 The Interchurch Council invited international and migrant church leaders in Denmark to a series of introductory online talks about church life and church culture in Denmark. In November 2021 we do it the other way around. International and migrant church leaders invite all Danish church representatives to join in a webinar series about Danish church life seen from an international perspective. 

We give the floor to migrant pastors and international church representatives and they share their dreams and hopes for the Danish church with us. The webinars will examine how the folkekirke can develop and become more open to Christians from different cultural backgrounds and will focus on topics such as mission, cooperation, leadership, and pastoral care etc. 

Below you can read an outline of the program. Note that there is not a full list of speakers yet, and the program is subject to change.

The webinar will take place from November till December 1 2021.
