The Theological Conference between the Church of England and the Evangelical Church in Germany is a key component of the Meissen Declaration, which was adopted 30 years ago and to which the churches have committed themselves in order »to resolve the outstanding differences between the participating churches«. To highlight the importance of the relations in a time of political uncertainty, the 2019's conference was dedicated to »Revisiting the Meissen Declaration after 30 years«. Discussion focused on the interchangeability of ministries, with reference to the understanding of this by the church and episcopate.
The papers focus on significant ecclesial and historical/theological developments. They attend to questions about the church and the episcopate with regard to ecclesial identity and in light of contemporary European ecumenical developments as well as sociological changes over the last three decades.
