Prior to the CCA Assembly, a Youth Forum is being planned to gather the youth delegates and participant to the Assembly. The Youth Forum is a space for young people to gather together, share their concern and promote youth participation in the Ecumenical Movement in Asia Pacific. WSCF AP will send some participants to the Youth Forum as soon as the invitation and registration form have been sent to us from CCA. You can also check the CCA website for updates and details, www.cca.org.hk/13ga/index.htm. If one of your SCM member has been selected by his/her church to be an official delegate or steward to this event, kindly inform the regional office, so we can put them in touch with the other SCMers who will be participating in the Youth Forum.

As the main regional ecumenical platform of churches and ecumenical agencies in the Asia Pacific region, the Christian Conference of Asia (CCA) General Assembly is an important event in the life of the churches and Ecumenical Movement in this region. The GA will gather together 450 delegates from its member churches, councils, ecumenical partners and friends of CCA. With the theme, “Called to Prophesy, Reconcile and Heal,” the Assembly, aside from its official business function, is an opportunity to listen the report of the 50 years review of the life of CCA, forum and workshops on emerging issues and to learn about the vision and direction of the Ecumenical Movement in Asia. As part of the Ecumenical Movement in AP, WSCF will participate in the GA as an official partner of CCA. We also expect some of our student members, senior friends to be part of churches and council delegation in the GA. The Regional Staff and some members of the Standing Committee will participate in the CCA GA to represent WSCF.
