Fragmentation and Unity: Being ecumenical in a fragmenting world

Fragmentation and Unity Ecumenism

Our Autumn Conference is hosted by the Church of Scotland Ecumenical Relations Committee and Action of Churches Together in Scotland.

The conference is open to anyone interested in ecumenism: Presbytery and Presbyterial Council Ecumenical Representatives, Churches Together groups, Councils of Churches, candidates for ministry and others.

Speakers:

Rev Canon Professor Charlotte Methuen, Professor of Church History at the University of Glasgow

Professor Methuen will reflect on the Appeal to all Christian People (1920) as a response to the catastrophe of WWI  and as the catalyst for ecumenism in Britain and Ireland in the years thereafter. She will discuss the contemporary relevance of the “Appeal” in the context of our present situation.
