 Focal points for Protestant education in Europe


In October 2015 EAEE was invited to the CPCE conference at Tutzing Academy.

Our member Mgr. Veronika Matejková from the Hussite Church in Czech Republic has written a report about this interesting conference, which was announced by this abstract:

The Community of Protestant Churches in Europe (CPCE) seeks to
deepen the fellowship between the churches. What does this mean
in terms of the Protestant churches’ commitment to education?
From October 26 to 28, 2015, education managers from the
Protestant churches in Europe and educational experts are invited
to come together at Tutzing Academy to share ideas and so form
networks. This way they may express common interests and develop
perspectives for educational activities in Europe.
The consultation is geared towards Protestant educational activities
in congregations, schools and society. The aim is to ascertain the
common educational responsibility in Europe and define the active
role of the churches among the actors in European Education.

EAEE Study Tour 2016 :




June 8-11, 2016

Tallinn, Pirita Convent


Connecting communities – as the title of our 2016 EAEE conference implies – relies on three columns: communicating, cooperating and contributing. These have always marked the tradition of Christian adult education.

We extend a warm welcome to all of you who will join us in meeting, sharing, and discussing the features of our field of work in Estonia and its international network. Ideas, best practice, experiences, questions, feelings throughout the conference will find their documentation on a story wall – just another experience of time and ideas shared creatively.

Two questions will guide us through the four-day conference:

  • How do we define ourselves as Christian communities?
  • Which communities have created new sustainable practices?

Gerson Amat Torregrosa

Sad news: Gerson Amat Torregrosa, our spanish friend and colleague died in August.

We feel very sad about Gersons death, for him, his relatives, for his church and the friendly team we met in Madrid. Gerson was a significant link with the southern Europe protestant churches. We are grateful for him, who he was and how he supported EAEE for many years. He managed the Madrid study tour last year. We remember the depth of his spiritual thoughts during the morning services at Escorial. He will be in our prayers.






David Goodbourn

We are sad to hear the news that Dr.David Goodbourn died on 9th November 2014. 

For many years David was involved in the ecumenical movement, both through the World Council of Churches and in the UK.  As president of EAEE, and more recently as leader of our study tour in Manchester in 2011,  he was known as a convincing theologian with a wide knowledge of adult education, a colleague  with personal convictions  and the ability to listen to people carefully and recognise other opinions.

Before he died, he reflected on his own situation and belief in a deeply touching essay.

Please read this in remembrance of him:
