About us

The European Christian Political Movement (ECPM) is the only Christian European political party. We are genuinely anchored in the political tradition that significantly contributed to the founding of the EU - Christian Democracy. Our goal is to fill the gap in the European political landscape by reiterating Christian Democracy as a viable political alternative in Europe, with a particular emphasis on a Christian relational worldview. Our movement brings together over 50 Christian-Democratic political parties, NGOs, think tanks and individual politicians from over 20 countries within the EU and beyond.
