LWF Learning Platform

Welcome to the LWF Learning Platform. All resources are organized by broad themes each containing more specific topics. Feel free to use our search function to quickly find what you are looking for. Currently, we have published themes under Churches and the Sustainable Development Goals, Diakonia, Leadership, and Theology. Other themes such as Human Rights, Gender Justice, Ecumenism, etc. will be coming soon.

Theme: Diakonia

Under this theme, you will find training materials and resources surrounding Diakonia. You will learn more about what Diakonia is, its theological rooting and practical expression, and why it is inseparably connected to the mission of the church. You will find out how diakonia is linked to the concept of conviviality and explore different practical resources and tools that help your church to become a ‘convivial church’. You will also find inspiration and practical guidance on how your church can collaborate with other diaconal actors, including the LWF’s humanitarian and development arm World Service.
