Ecumenical Handbook

This handbook is an initiative of the Diocesan Ecumenical Team to encourage and facilitate parishes to cooperate and work more closely with other Churches that we may fulfil the demands of the Gospel and be more effective in our mission

The handbook is a very valuable resource for several reasons:

CHAPTER ONE: Ecumenism: An Introduction

  • It gives a very clear definition of ecumenism

CHAPTER TWO: Umbrella Ecumenical Bodies in Wales

  • It explains the various umbrella organisations in Wales that seek to promote Christian Unity.

CHAPTER THREE: Ecumenism and Canon Law

  • It addresses the legal framework that facilitates cooperation between different denominations. This is crucial as we seek to be faithful to our own tradition whilst sharing with others in ministry and mission.

CHAPTER FOUR: Frequently Asked Questions

  • This section covers a range of topics, which will be of practical help to ministers and congregations.

     CHAPTER FIVE: Contacts with Other Churches

    • Finally, you will find a very useful chapter of contacts from the main denominations in Wales.
