NCC – C

NB: A series of Preliminary Conversations between a group of leaders of the New Charismatic Churches [NCC] and the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity took place in the Vatican (2008, 2009, 2012) at the request of the participants in the encounters called “A Gathering in the Holy Spirit” co-sponsored by the Centro Pro Unione and some Non-Denominational leaders. At the end of this preliminary phase, it was agreed to have a round of Conversations starting in 2014 to explore their identity and self-understanding (2014, 2016, 2017, 2018).

What follows is a record of those encounters followed by the meetings of the informal conversations with the PCPCU:
