Care & Outreach
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
The Ecumenical Group
The role of the Ecumenical Group is to lead the Parish in sharing our Christian life together with the other Christians in our community as fully and widely as we can, in love and service to God, and to God’s world. In doing so, we acknowledge the sincerity of each tradition of faith; rejoice in our common Christian faith and heritage, and give thanks to the Holy Spirit for leading us into closer friendship and unity of purpose.
The Group has members from each of our parish churches and meets [with our priest] three times a year to initiate and co-ordinate activities in the community and with other Christian churches. We would be delighted to hear from any parishioner who would like to join our Group. Win Brown leads the Group and can be contacted Here.
Parishioners participate in various traditional ecumenical events through the year including:
Walks of Witness on Good Friday, Lent Lunches, Stations of the Cross and services in the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity
An annual Taizé Service in Haslemere
Annual Lent lunch and other activities as part of Chiddingfold’s ‘Joint Churches’ initiative
We are also represented and periodically host “Men’s Breakfast” which is an ecumenical group that comes together from time to time on a Saturday for a breakfast followed by a talk and discussion.
For more information on both Men’s Breakfasts and the Wave, please contact James Rapp, Here
