Examples of new churches might include be the Pioneer Networks, independent or house churches and of course Fresh Expressions. We would also be interested to hear of partnership working with churches not traditionally involved in ecumenical work, such as the black majority churches.
If you have any accounts, send them to the Assistant Ecumenical Officer. Suitable stories will be circulated amongst ecumenical staff on the team. There is a possibility, with the senders' agreement, to feature these stories on Methodist Ecumenical News. If that is a possibility, it would be good to have some photos or videos too.
