Participants of the men and women’s pre-assembly report that the speech of LWF staff member Elaine Neuenfeldt was very impressive.

Neuenfeldt, LWF secretary for Women in Church and Society (WICAS) reported about church relationship. About responsibility of member churches to bring their content contribution to the communion and how the Communion Office can support member churches.

Neuenfeldt talked about gender issues and some participants from WCC commented about the professional and sustainable way of communication with member churches.

"We have learnt a lot from each other in these days," one participant said.
