EBF Council 2021

Discerning God's Future Together

Hybrid Event

The EBF Council will be taking place as a 'hybrid' event (in person + online) from Wednesday 22nd to Saturday 25th September at the Park Inn by Radisson Amsterdam City West. (Please note that the venue has changed.)


This decision was made by the EBF leadership after consulting the EBF member Unions and reviewing carefully the current Covid-19 entry regulations for the Netherlands. For those who can travel to Amsterdam, you will stay and meet safely at the Hotel.


For those who are still not able to join us in person, we are arranging the main sessions to be accessible online.

Join us in person in Amsterdam or online

After so many months of not being able to meet together, we hope that as many a possible will now be able to join us in person. Of course, we are sad that this will not include everyone who would like to be there.


We have been working on a participative programme for the Council which will include the election of new leadership for the EBF - and saying ‘farewell’ to the ‘retiring’ General Secretary.


Please join us in prayer that the decision we have made can be carried through to the Council, and that we will know the Lord’s presence and leading as we meet together.


Grace and peace,


Tony Peck

Helle Liht
