Hope in a Pilgrimage of Justice and Peace formed the integral thread for proceedings when the Central Committee of the World Council of Churches (WCC) met in Trondheim, Norway at the end of June.

The 2016 meeting took place 22-28 June, the second gathering since the Central Committee was elected at the WCC 10th Assembly in Busan, Republic of Korea in 2013.
