It gives me great pleasure, as Chair of the Bedfordshire Ecumenical Committee, to say a few words of welcome to the website of Churches Together in Bedfordshire. The County of Bedford has not seen, over the years, a great deal of structured ecumenical development in terms of formal local ecumenical partnerships. In some ways that has made ecumenism much more grass roots with the towns and villages of the County truly blazing a trail as Christians from many traditions work together in prayer, witness and service to bring about a growing sense of unity and common mission. This has been encouraged and supported down the years by a number of highly committed County Ecumenical Development Officers and I am pleased that our present CEDO, Mrs Anita Nancollas, is also equally passionate about the cause of Christian Unity.
I hope that this website will help you either individually or as a member of a Churches Together group to make a real commitment to Christian Unity in the County of Bedfordshire.
Mgr Sean Healy
