The objective of the ECC in the field of education is to promote Christian education.

What is Religious Education?

Religious Education is a school subject presenting various religions and religious movements, based on the principles of freedom of religion and freedom of thought.

Classes of Religious Education enable students to learn about manifestations of religion in culture and in the life of individuals and society. Class discussions mainly revolve around existential issues.

The classes of Religious Education are based on the respective national curriculum, which is independent and separate of any missionary efforts of any particular church or religious association.

The classes of Religious Education provide students with basic knowledge on religion, serving as the foundation for freedom of religion in society.

The ECC supports publication of the magazine “Christian Education” (Kristlik Kasvatus). The target group of the magazine includes school and Sunday school teachers, university students, nursery school teachers and parents. Three issues are published per year, with informative articles to support and clarify matters of Christian education.
