A Message from the Co-Chairs of Churches Together in Kent
The County Ecumenical Officer, Chris Ruddle, has resigned from his role serving Churches Together in Kent from the end of December 2017 in order that he can focus on other aspects of his ministry as a Baptist minister. We will be sorry to lose Chris who has undertaken his responsibilities with imagination and energy.
Chris’s departure comes about at a time of change in the ecumenical landscape of our country. At a local level there are numerous mission initiates springing up where churches of different traditions are coming together to serve their communities in the name of Jesus and to make the good news of God’s love known. The leaders of Churches Together in Kent are committed to praying for and supporting these initiatives; Churches Together groups and county wide organisations. They are an expression of Jesus’ prayer that his people should be one. We meet together regularly to pray and to confer and will be doing so again for 24 hours in December. At that meeting we will be giving attention to finding the way forward for Church Together in Kent over the next few years.
If you have any enquiries or need information please consult the person responsible for ecumenical work in your denomination or email CTKentHub@yahoo.co.uk
