Towards Unity in Mission

The following is news of a consultation to take place during October, based upon the Edinburgh 2010 conference, earlier this year.  The consultation is in two parts and the part that is open to the public is now fully booked.  However, there are still a few spaces left for ecumenical officers.  If you are interested, details of how to enrol are below. 

Ecumenical Officers’ Consultation 2010, 11th to 13th October 2010 and incorporating a Public Conference, from lunch on 11th to lunch on 12th October

Edinburgh 1910-2010
Towards Unity in Mission
This Conference marks the centenary of the Edinburgh Missionary Conference, often understood as the beginning of the modern Ecumenical Movement.  It was a singular moment in the history and theology of mission and world Christianity.

The Ecumenical Officers of the five Churches will continue the consultation from tea on 12th to lunch on 13th October, to reflect on the themes of the conference in relation to our work.


 The Revd Dr Jeremy Morris:  Dean of Trinity Hall, Cambridge, and a church historian who has written widely about twentieth century church history

Dr Kirsteen Kim:  Associate Senior Lecturer at Leeds Trinity University College, and a missiologist who has published a number of works about mission and world Christianity

Fr James Hanvey SJ:  Lecturer in Systematic Theology, Heythrop College, London, and a systematic theologian with particular interests in the Trinity and ecclesiology

The Revd Dr Stephen Finamore (Principal of Bristol Baptist College) will give two Bible readings, one during the public conference and one during the Ecumenical Officers' meeting and join in as an interlocutor throughout.

The total cost of the Consultation is £127

If you are an ecumenical officer and would like to attend, there are still a few places.  Contact Elspeth Coke, Council for Christian Unity, Church House, Great Smith Street, London, SW1P 3NZ.  Email:  Telephone 020 7898 1473
