Exploring a spirituality of communion
11 November 2017

EcumAfternoon2017insertEcumAfternoon2017insertAn afternoon exploring a spirituality of communion and its impact upon Christian unity. How does the practice of love for one another transform relations among churches? This transformation will be viewed from the perspectives of different Christian traditions.

 As we remember together the dramatic effect of the Lutheran Reformation 500 years ago, and appreciate the gifts of all the churches, we can see our common understanding of communion as vital both for renewal and for Christian witness to the world…

The afternoon will feature a keynote address by Callan Slipper (National Ecumenical Officer for the Church of England) who will present the Focolare’s experience of the spirituality of unity. There will also be a sharing of real-life stories that focus upon the building of communion and an inter-church panel discussion. The panellists are:

Martin Lind 
(Bishop of the Lutheran Church in Great Britain)

John Sherrington 
(Roman Catholic Auxiliary Bishop of Westminster)

Jane Litchmore-Grant 
(The Church of God of Prophecy)

Christopher Chessun 
(Anglican Bishop of Southwark)
