General Assembly of CPGS

Last weekend CPGS had its General Assembly in Paris, France. We thank our member Eclaireuses et Eclaireurs Unionistes de France for hosting us and introducing us to French Protestantism.

The assembly heard the reports by the chairperson and the treasurer and discussed future activities, for example a seminary for exchanging our spiritual and religious programmes.
