Declaration of Commitment by the Presidents
The Declaration of Commitment was first signed by the Presidents of the Milton Keynes Mission Partnership (formerly known as Milton Keynes Christian Council), representing the Anglican, Methodist, Roman Catholic, United Reformed Churches and the Baptist Union, together with the Ecumenical Moderator of the MKCC, on 24th February 1996. It has subsequently been signed by all of the regional denominational leaders in post since then together with the Ecumenical Moderator’s successors.
There is also an earlier Declaration of Commitment dated May 1984.

It is with sadness we inform you of the death of Rev Gordon Simmonds on 19th February. Gordon was the Methodist Superintendent in MK from the late 1970s to the early 1980s and played a significant role in the development of ecumenism in Milton Keynes.
At our Spring Assembly on Tuesday 9th March we will take the opportunity to explain something of Mission Partnership itself and take away some of the mystery!
The first Sunday in Lent always centres around those strange and disturbing texts in the gospels which tell the story of the temptation of Jesus in the wilderness. It has often struck me that there is a “fourth temptation” which precedes the other three and without which there is no story at all, indeed there is no story about Jesus at all.
