CTE Presidents' meet with leaders
of member churches
The leaders of CTE’s member churches met with the Presidents over a buffet meal at Lambeth Palace on October 24th. After the meal Archbishop Justin introduced a discussion on how the churches could collaborate in their common mission to England. This was based on the findings of the Theos report That they may all be one: insights into Churches Together in England and contemporary ecumenism (available as a pdf download from our website).
The Presidents also took the opportunity to thank Bishop Eric Brown, the first Pentecostal President of CTE at the end of his four year period of office, and to welcome his successor, Pastor Agu Irukwu of the Redeemed Christian Church of God. As a sign of their common commitment to seek the unity of Christ’s Church, the Presidents signed the personal covenant which binds them to support each other in prayer and work towards the visible unity of the church. The text of the Covenant can be found on the website here.
The church leaders joined Archbishop Justin in the Crypt Chapel for compline at the end of the evening.
