Changes at CT in the Merseyside Region
Recent months have been eventful for CTMR; most significant has been the departure of Ian Smith as Ecumenical Development Officer after many years of faithful service.
Ian's role came to an end through a process of restructure, which we expect to make us a lighter, more responsive organisation, equipped to bring God's people together for mission in our contemporary world. I speak for many when I express appreciation for all that Ian has done, particularly the way he has graciously enabled things to move forward throughout this process. We were able to make a small presentation to Ian at our Management Council in September.
Ian's former role has been combined with that of Office Administrator to appoint a new Ecumenical Co-ordinator. This enables the basic operations of CTMR to continue, while also overseeing the work of a number of Project Co-ordinators who will take key initiatives forward.
We are delighted to announce that Elisabeth Hachmoeller has been appointed to this role and look forward to working with her. Elisabeth is already well-known to us through her former role as Administrator; she brings significant experience and vision for contemporary Chrisitan ecumenism.
