Welcome to the China Center

The China Center (China-Zentrum e.V.) has been in existence since 1988. Legally recognized as a non-profit organization, the China Center encourages encounters and exchange between cultures and religions in the West and in China.

Focus China:

Colloquium “Challenges of Evangelisation – China and Europe”

The title of the 9th European Catholic China Colloquium ECCC itself – “Challenges of Evangelisation – China and Europe” – aroused high expectations, which the great amount of information and the fruitful encounters alone fulfilled. The title evokes much – not least Pope Francis’ Apostolic Exhortation Evangelii Gaudium (2013), which is concerned with the “proclamation of the gospel in today’s world.” It would also have been unthinkable without Vatican II and its missionary dynamism, made particularly effective in the Decree on the Mission Activity of the Church Ad Gentes which states, “In the present state of affairs […] the Church […] is more urgently called upon to save and renew every creature, that all things may be restored in Christ and all men may constitute one family in Him and one people of God” (AG 1). December 7, 2015 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the promulgation of this important mission document by Paul VI. It is still relevant. Our present “world state of affairs” has not yet caught up with and certainly not overtaken it.
