Major Review of County level Ecumenism
Last year, Churches Together in England conducted a major review of how ecumenism
is encouraged and supported at intermediate or county level. The review is interesting
reading, and clearly indicates that ‘Churches Together’ life as we’ve known it in
recent years is changing, and facing new challenges and opportunities.
