Due to the corona crisis, the near future is uncertain and we don’t know when things will get back to normal. Nevertheless, the European Kinship Meeting (EKM) is still planned for the end of August. We expect that by that time things will have gone back to normal.

It is understandable that you hesitate to register as long as it is uncertain when travel and meeting restrictions will be lifted. For that reason, we are giving you until the end of June to register at the early bird rate.

If the meeting is not going to take place this year, it will be postponed to the end of August/beginning of September 2021. In that case, those who have registered for this year and will not be able to join us next year will get their registration fee refunded.

We will be meeting at the Abbey Rolduc in the little town of Kerkrade near the German and Belgian borders.

We'd like to invite you to our annual European Kinship Meeting in Kerkrade. For this meeting, the theme will be "QUEERING THE BIBLE" and we have invited an excellent speaker whom you will surely appreciate. From Thursday evening to Sabbath we will have lectures, lively discussions, good food, walks, laughter, and more for you to enjoy. On Sunday there is an optional trip to the beautiful and cozy city of 's-Hertogenbosch, capital of the province of North Brabant. And if this is not enough, you are also welcome at our traditional EKM Holiday right after EKM from Monday, August 31, to Monday, September 7 (you will receive a separate form).

Please register online or use the paper registration form and mail it in.
