Evangelical Church in Germany
Give the territorial churches a common voice in their relationship to the state and the society and in ecumenical relationships; have a variety of partnerships and dialogues through parishes, pastors and other contacts.
Following the war, in 1948, the German regional churches adopted a constitution and formed the Evangelical Church in Germany (EKD). A fellowship of Lutheran, Reformed and United churches, the EKD is a public-law corporation, as are its member churches.

It supports the work of the European Council of Religious Leaders, a Europe-wide multi-faith network. Furthermore, EKD gives lectures, organizes conferences and workshops, and provides information and materials on Islam, Judaism and Christian-Muslim as well as Christian-Jewish dialogue.
