The Training Centre Wuppertal has had its residence on the so-called Heiliger Berg - Holy Mountain in Wuppertal - for decades. Since 1925 the building has been used for education purposes. In the beginning there was the training of missionaries of the Rhenish Mission. Since 1972 it has been a place of ecumenical and international meeting and learning with a special offer of education.
The Training Centre Wuppertal especially emphasizes qualified education in the field of transcultural learning, inter-religious dialogue and the support of international ecumenical partnerships between church districts and parishes.
There has been a new concept as to the conference centre "Auf dem heiligen Berg" since September 2013. The conference centre is centrally situated in the local recreation area "Hardt-Anlagen". The surrounding area "Bergisches Land" and the city of Wuppertal offer a historically interesting and culturally diversified environment.
The UEM Training Centre Wuppertal is still residing in the building and conducts its courses in the conference centre.
