ÖKT 2021 English
Due to the current pandemic situation and the associated uncertain conditions in May 2021, the format of the 3rd Ecumenical Kirchentag (ÖKT) in Frankfurt/Main, Germany, will be fundamentally changed.
We will continue to fulfil our responsibility as a Christian platform with all our might. We will focus on digital participation and connecting people in Frankfurt and beyond. To this end, we are now developing a programme highly focused on the major challenges the church and society are facing today.
We will make the network of our Christian faith and ecumenism visible. Everyone is invited to experience and participate in the ÖKT - in your parish, in your organisation or in your circle of friends and family.
The motto of the ÖKT is schaut hin (take a look) (Mark 6:38). Especially in times of crisis, we need to focus on our common Christian responsibility for our world and our life together. The ÖKT has the unique opportunity to give a platform to those who are seriously struggling to preserve our democratic constitution, our peaceful coexistence and the ecological foundations of life. We want to use this opportunity.
