LUCCEA is one of three bodies that group Lutheran churches in Africa, including non-LWF members, to facilitate collaboration at the regional level and with the LWF. One of its goals is to connect youth and women.
The sub-regional bloc runs programs on topics such as HIV and AIDS awareness, capacity building and leadership skills to strengthen its work of improving the lives of people in need among the member churches and the communities they serve.
LUCCEA comprises churches in Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda and Tanzania.
Jarmark: A platform for dialogue and sharing stories
Jarmark – a Polish word for a fair – is a place to wonder and wander about, to meet others and to discover some of the many aspects that shape the global communion of Lutheran churches. Member churches, related organizations and ecumenical partners, as well as LWF country programs are presenting their work and offering opportunities to learn from each other.
