THE ECUMENICAL POSSE
Churches Together in Dorking
All member churches and others in the area are invited to nominate
to visit other local churches together occasionally -for Sunday worship
- to learn from each other
-to understand one another more
Then please send names and email addresses of your nominees to
Peter Essex c/o
Thought is being given to an ecumenical choir for united services and possibly for more exchanges of pulpits.
There is also consideration of a CTD website.
Could each church nominate someone to join a group tasked to look at coordinated response
to needs for practical emergency support/crisis intervention rather than each church trying to go it alone?
Might there be a strategy for ensuring that chaplaincy is present for all local care homes?
What about a local interfaith dialogue? There is good news that street pastors are up and running again.
