The Ecumenical Relations Committee, now independent of the Mission Board, has aimed to pursue more active relationships with churches in the U.K. over the past year.
In the report, Convener Rev. David Meredith said, “There is a fragrance which comes from the ‘precious oil’ which anoints the process of international efforts at maintaining unity.”
Inter-church contacts have developed through fostering relationships with denominations across the globe including, Ireland, Australia, India, South Africa, Sudan and North America. The Committee was pleased to send Rev. Iver Martin as a delegate to several American General Assemblies last year where he was warmly welcomed and thanked for the Church’s renewed contact.
Over the last year, the Committee has continued to build relationships with other Christian organisations such as Affinity, The International Conference of Reformed Churches, the World Reformed Fellowship and the Evangelical Alliance, they thanked them for their continued partnership and look forward to working with them in the future.
