Meissen Agreement

The Church of England’s relations with the Evangelical Church in Germany (EKD) are based on the Meissen Agreement, signed in 1991. With the Meissen Declaration the EKD and the Church of England recognised each other as churches belonging to the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church of Jesus Christ and committed themselves to take all possible steps to closer fellowship in as many areas of Christian life and witness as possible, and to strive together for full, visible unity. More about the Meissen Agreement can be found on the Church of England website and the EKD website.
