The Wider Outlook Works Festival is going to be inspiring, transforming, networking and music-making. Where and when? At the GERRY WEBER STADIUM in Halle/Westphalia, Germany from 6 to 8 May 2016. One World live concerts, encounters with visitors from the worldwide partnerships, panels, workshops, information stands on topics that concern us all, a festive service for children and adults with ecumenical guests … and a host of activities, performance art and interactive events – all at an unusual venue. The Evangelical Church in Westphalia warmly invites you to take part.
The Reformation anniversary recalls Martin Luther posting his 95 Theses on the door of Castle Church in Wittenberg on 31 October 1517. And in 2016 we are widening our horizons beyond Germany to include the whole world. “Reformation and One World” is the theme for the final year in the Reformation Decade that has been leading up to the great celebration.
The three Protestant regional churches in North Rhine-Westphalia – the Evangelical Church in the Rhineland, the Evangelical Church of Westphalia and the Church of Lippe – have planned the campaign “A Wider Outlook Works – Reformation and One World 2016” as a joint project with Bread for the World – Protestant Development Service and the United Evangelical Mission (UEM) and other partners. The year 2016 will feature a number of different actions, including the Wider Outlook Works Festival in the GERRY WEBER STADIUM in Halle/Westphalia, Germany.
