Dear Member Churches and Associate Members,
INVITATION TO THE 11TH GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE AACC
I have the pleasure to announce and formally invite you to the 11th General Assembly of the All Africa Conference of Churches (AACC) to be held from 1st to 7th July 2018 in Kigali, Rwanda under the theme:
“Respecting the Dignity and God’s image in every human being” (Genesis 1: 26 – 27)
I kindly and warmly request you to block the date in your diary now and make plans to attend. Please share with us as soon as possible names of your delegates so that we can plan and prepare for their effective participation.
The General Assembly is an important event in the 5-year calendar of the AACC. It is the highest legislative body of the organization where delegates, among other things revisit the mandate and vision of the organization and orient its programmatic thrusts and strategies in order to respond ecumenically to emerging challenges and dynamics in the continent and beyond.
We need the full participation of your Church/National Council of Churches/ Organisation etc. to ensure your AACC works in the interest of its membership, the ecumenical movement and humanity at large.
In line with past practice the delegates to the Assembly shall be:
- Member Churches: 3 delegates (i.e. Head of the Church, 1 Woman and 1 Youth Leaders)
- Associate Members/Organisations: 1 delegate (e.g. Head of the Organisation)
All delegates are expected to meet the full cost of air transport and visa fees as their contribution to the cost of organising the Assembly. We advise you to mobilise and motivate youths and women in your churches to start raising funds now to enable them meet the costs of their representatives.
We shall in due course furnish you with more details on Registration forms and other logistical arrangements. We are ready to respond to further questions and clarifications that you may require.
Kindly forward you enquiries to the following addresses:
I do hope you can make time in your busy schedules to attend and pray for the success of this process and the General Assembly.
