The European Network of Communities, enc, is an ecumenical family of committed Christian communities in Europe.
We consist of ecumenical and church-specific communities, of which most are Catholic.
We refer to ourselves as “communities of the Third Way” meaning that we are neither local churches, nor are we religious orders, but rather a “third” way of putting into practice the biblical ideal of Christian community.
We try to follow the example of the early church of Jerusalem (Acts 2 and 4)
We are joined together by a common set of values but at the same time, each community varies widely in its calling, emphasis, structures, and goals.
We are communities from different church backgrounds and have a common call to promote Christian reconciliation and unity
