European Regional Committee

 The European Regional Committee (ERC) is elected to carry the work of WSCF-Europe together with the WSCF-Europe members of staff. We are young volunteers, who are dedicated to the work and life of WSCF-Europe. Besides implementing the work suggested by the ERA, we work with the SCMs, other regions and partners. We get our mandate from the European Regional Assemblies (ERAs) that happen every other year.

Our main role is to manage the work of WSCF-Europe as the key decision-making body of the Federation in Europe between ERAs. The ERC consists of:

The Board:


  • Facilitate the work of ERC and Board
  • Keep an overview of the activities and projects of the region
  • Meet with partners and donors
  • Strategic organisational development
ChairpersonChristiane Ehrengruber (Germany) /

My name is Christiane Ehrengruber. I am a protestant Theologian working in Digital Communication in an ecumenical organization in Hamburg, Germany, and am Chairperson of WSCF-Europe as of October 2019.

I got involved with WSCF-E in 2016, when the German national level delegated me to attend events and represent Germany at the European Regional Assembly 2017. There, I was elected as Program Coordinator, which has been a great experience for me.

In my role as Chairperson, my primary responsibilities are the coordination of the work of the European Regional Committee as well as the board, strategic organizational development and of course networking with our partners. I am happy to get in touch with you and speak about our work and expertise and discover ways to start new collaborations or involve you in our mission.

I am looking forward to getting to know you and your ideas.

Paudie Holly (Ireland) /

I’m Paudie Holly from SCM Ireland. I’ve been a member now for three years. I am also a PhD candidate in Trinity College Dublin’s School of Ecumenics, based in Dublin. My studies focus on theological anthropology.

Right now, the things in WSCF which I find most interesting are: the new ideas in the Gender and Sexuality Working Group and the work of the Constitution Commission. As a member of the Constitution Commission, I look at amendments to the By-laws and the Constitution, that are proposed by the national movements. As a member of the Gender and Sexuality working group I am really enthusiastic about the great leaps forward modern Christians are making.

The Coordinators:


  • Connecting SCMs with each other
  • Connecting SCMs with WSCF-Europe
  • Training program for SCM staff and officers
Links Coordinator
Links CoordinatorSarah Eulitz (Germany) /

Hello everyone, I am Sarah and I am a student of Philosophy and Comparative Theology in Paderborn, Germany. Since 2021 I am engaged as the links coordinator of WSCF Europe.

My journey with WSCF Europe began in 2019 where I was a delegate for SCM Germany at the European Assembly in Copenhagen. It was my first international event with ecumenical interested students from all over Europe. I really loved the open-minded and supportive atmosphere of the event and decided to do an internship at the regional office in Trento in 2020. This insight in the structure of the organisation helped me with my current work in the European Regional Committee.

If you have any questions regarding movement-building, the possibility of a membership at WSCF or just want to connect with other SCMs feel free to contact me at

Programme Coordinator
Programme CoordinatorHenriette Greulich (Germany) /

Hi everybody, I am Henriette Greulich. I am currently doing my master’s degree in political science at the university of Dresden. I serve at WSCF-Europe as the programme coordinator since November 2022.

I actually joined the local SCM in Dresden when I started studying because my mother told me about her great experiences and lifelong friendships from her days involved in a SCM. Since 2016, I am engaged with my local SCM in Dresden and at the national level with SCM Germany, from where I am delegated to represent young people and students in the synod of the German Protestant Church.

In 2019, I got in touch with WSCF-Europe participating in the study session on Youth Extremism in Utrecht. Being together with inspiring young students from all over Europe and learn about youth leadership within the Churches and Politics was a unique experience. As a programme coordinator my work encompasses organizing all of our current and future events. My aim for that is to create events, where people from all over Europe can bring their unique vision, creativity, dedication and passion to the table.

If you want to get in touch with me about any of our events or our agenda, please send me an e-mail to
