The CPCE is a community of churches in fellowship. By signing the Leuenberg Agreement these churches commit themselves to “common witness and service” and work together to come closer to each other wherever possible in spite of existing differences.
The CPCE is a worshipping communion. The churches celebrate services and the Lord’s Supper together; they recognise each other’s baptism and ordination. They exchange views on their liturgical traditions. And they sing from the joint European hymn book of the CPCE, Colours of Grace.
The CPCE is the joint voice of Protestants. Many of its members are minority churches, fulfilling their task under sometimes difficult conditions. In a changing Europe the CPCE strengthens and unites the voice of the Protestants over against the political institutions in Europe.
