Europe region governance laws
ERA will be a space to consider changes to our governance principles described in the Europe region By-laws. ERC released in July 2015 a document suggesting changes which concern improvement of processes of WSCF-Europe. ERA will discuss them and vote on them. You can find document below, in the Reference Material section.
Prayer time will also constitute important element of ERA as an event where we gather as a community to plan and decide about the future of WSCF-Europe. ERA will have a special dedicated person Are Kaspersen for pastoral care and he will also lead prayers and will organise prayers with us, participants. Please get in touch with Are at firstname.lastname@example.org by 19 October if you wish to help with music playing, singing or helping in any way. We are looking forward to creating beautiful prayer time with your skills and gifts.
