This chapter discusses the nature of the dialogue between the European institutions and Catholic, Protestant and Anglican organisations. It investigates the intention of the Evangelical Church of Germany to have an official representation in Brussels in 1969 and the significance of the President of the European Commission’s refusal. In contrast, after de Gaulle’s resignation and the 1969 summit in The Hague, in 1970 the Holy See was able to establish diplomatic relations with the European Community. This chapter investigates Catholic–Protestant relations with European institutions which led to the 1974 Roehampton Conference. The conference focused on the finalité, the ‘nature and purpose’ of the European Community, and demonstrated the climax of religious cooperation after the Second World War with its decision to establish a joint Catholic–Protestant group assessing development policy.
