Delegate Selection

300 mission leaders from across the world are coming to Edinburgh in June 2010 to witness to Christ today.

About 100 delegates have been appointed by the Edinburgh 2010 Study Process Monitoring Group. These delegates are in some way already involved in the ongoing study process through leadership of groups working on the main study themes, the transversal topics, and/or regional and confessional Edinburgh 2010 events.

Up to a further 200 delegates have been chosen by the stakeholders of Edinburgh 2010. The stakeholders made their decisions independently, but were asked to appoint as delegates those whom they think will be well placed to take back into the life of their own Church their experience of the conference.

Both the Study Process Monitoring Group and the stakeholders of Edinburgh 2010 committed themeselves to appoint as delegates 60% from the global south, 50% women, and 20% under the age of 30. By promoting this policy the General Council has endavoured that the world church is represented properly.

Please note attendance of the Edinburgh 2010 conference will be by invitation only, through churches, church organisations and institutions. There is no application procedure. However, we invite you to register for the Sunday Celebrations in Edinburgh (see below).
