If you’re wondering “Help! What do we do with our local Churches Together group?” then this new resource is aimed at you.
It’s been put together by three County Ecumenical Officers to help local groups as they come together and re-focus after the interruption of the pandemic.
Ecumenical Mission Enabler for Telford & Shropshire, Chris Densham, explained the origins of the document, “it came about from a discussion on one of our regular CEO Zoom calls. We were sharing what we were each hearing on our own patch and realised that many of our local CT groups were expressing similar concerns – how should they pick up again after the pandemic?
“A small team was formed and together we have captured some ideas which we hope will encourage and inspire our ecumenical colleagues across England.”
Another of the authors, Churches Together in Herefordshire’s County Ecumenical Officer, Anna Nugent adds, “being part of this exercise has given me more confidence to prayerfully support groups worrying about their future, with the knowledge that the same is happening all over the country, with different outcomes depending on the people involved.”
