Member churches in the UEK

Guests are


The UEK was founded on July 1, 2003. The organisation succeeded the former organisation Berlin. For structural reasons, it was moved to the seat of the Evangelical Church in Germany (EKD) in Hanover though.


The parliament (=Vollkonferenz) of the organisation is an elected group of 47 members, which are elected for six years each term. The 47 members elect a "Präsidium".
