…The vision for the Diocese of Canterbury set out in Growing Forward Together – Towards 2020 commits us, as a missionary people, to work ecumenically wherever possible…

The Diocese is inspired in its ecumenical work by the story of Jesus praying about his disciples with the words, ‘that they may all be one. As you, Father, are in me and I am in you, may they also be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me.’ (John 17.21)

Communities & Partnerships are available to help and support groups and churches as they explore:

  • The ecumenical use of buildings
  • Shared worship
  • Share ministry
  • Local and ecumenical partnerships

Kent is also served by a number of ecumenical officers, each of whom is there to provide advice on how people can think more ecumenically about prayer, outreach, hospitality and communication. A list of all the officers can be found on the Churches Together in Kent website.
